Notes from the Waxhaws

A welcome sight

leave a comment »

I was finishing up supper when I heard a noise outside, and then someone walking up the steps to the front porch. It was Wendell, returning the John Deere, all shiny and tuned up for the coming season. He had just picked it up yesterday for some maintenance, and I wasn’t expecting it back so soon. But…it’s more than a welcome sight…since I hadn’t yet mown the grass this Spring. Soon after Wendell left, I started it up and made quick work of the front yard. It felt good to be back in the saddle again, especially on this mild evening here in the Waxhaws. An almost full moon rising above the trees…silver and bright against the deep blue sky. The lush green grasses and sedges overtaking the dried amber remnants from last year. This Spring has a different feel to it…a sense of promise that…perhaps…there are better days ahead.
