IMG_0267I could (mis)spell notice as knowtice because

when I (K)notice, I come to know more. A serendipity.

Especially when it happens with the guy I’ve been with for 45 years,

I’m reminded that there’s always more to learn;

like when I walk the same paths on the Cape,

blue inlets of the bay on the one side and picket fences on the other,

I’m surprised at what I discover,

what’s been there all the time.

Who (K)new.

    1. After I read the Outermost House, I yearned to spend my own year there, watching the weather, the tides, the wildlife, the landscape. There’s so many things to wonder about. I adore Thoreau but he got paid by the word. 🙂
