tonight the moonlight is bright enough to make my front lawn gleam with just a little blueness; it is bright enough to glint off the hoods of cars parked in our driveway, to pass through the leaves of the trees that line this street and lay watery shadows on the pavement. it makes the thinking easier.
i am mulling over some difficult things tonight. by this time tomorrow, i – courage withstanding – will have closed a chapter i have meant to shut for months now. leaving is rarely ever easy, and i never seem to have the right words or the poise to put them forth just so. but it’s time.
i think tomorrow i’ll need another one of these.
