a dream- day 30

I have always, always had the dream of sitting on a covered porch in the mountains in the West somewhere, drinking a cup of tea, coffee, or wine, sitting with my husband as the grey of dusk settles in around us, the blue lake in front of us begins to shimmer and shine, mountains tower above the pasture where we see our cows and horses grazing content, peaceful. The calves are still nursing and foals are still with their mothers, it is fall. Leaves are brown, the grass is brown, "It is almost weaning time," I say.

My husband nods and we still gaze out on our land, hand in hand, on our rockers. We might even have the grandkids there that weekend.
Maybe...dreaming it so...


  1. This is so beautifully described. It made me feel peaceful simply reading it.

    I hope it may all come to pass as you dream it. xo

  2. Hi,

    I just read your post on glow in the woods and wanted to say hi. I live in Telluride and to have lost a baby. Our little boy baby taz was born sept 10, 2006 and died sept 12th. just felt a connection because you are in Colorado and how powerful Chris Post is and how new and intense your loss is. I understand and I still and always will understand 4 years out-40 years out. I still bottom out. We have a 7 year old and a 21/2 year-both girls both amazing. I hold hope for you, for Chris and Lani, for all to have healthy babies......Much love Lara
