It’s hot tonight. Getting late. I’ve got the sliding door wide open. The candle burns. The tea is warm and delicious. Crickets are louder than normal. I’m enjoying their song.

I love this time of year in Oregon - cricket season. I just made a 5-minute recording of them to use in some sort music or soundscape later.

There was a small rain shower that passed a few minutes ago. Nature is slow, intentional - always there to remind us to slow down and take the present as it is.

I’m glad the reminder is there.
