Things I missed

These are some of the things I miss when I am not in NY

Bacon, bookstores, Chinese food, bagels, seeing old friends, walking through favorite museums, speaking English to strangers, turning the pages of the New York Times.

These are some of the things I miss when I am not in the garden:

The smell of the air, clean water with no chlorine, fresh eggs from our hens, Ali, sleeping in darkness, seeing moonlight, hearing owls and the buzz of the bee, catching a whiff of flowers as I walk, getting my hands dirty… in dirt, composting, watching my garden grow.

We had a great time in NY, but it’s nice to be home.
