Driving along the back roads looking for photo opts for my niece's senior graduation photo. We found a few and will drive back in the days to come.
We stopped every five minutes, it was sunset with pink ribbons, and the rain from the day gave the countryside a certain air.
The silence of miles around was incredibly peace.
The paved road gave way to gravel.
This spot was marked "X" we liked it best. Now if only those clouds could stay until we come back.
Such troopers, my nieces asked, "Aunt Coco we need to take off our sweatshirts, and do you want us to smile?"
They know me well.
The road leading ahead, around the bend, a steady path, taking us to tomorrow, yet not leaving today. Marie and Gina will graduate from high school this spring. Seeing them reminds me we are all getting older, though their ageing is blooming. Those little girls are young women now, the road is ahead of them.
Too good this kind of love.
