Feeling Wealthy

I have been feeling kind of wealthy lately.  Maybe not in the way you are thinking, but very wealthy anyway.

Last night I sat on the deck and listened to the frogs in the pond.  We have at least five species that I can recognize by sound and three of those were out.  I watched the stars.  I watched the fireflies and a couple of bats against the night sky.

Coyotes sang to me last night.  I hear them a lot but don’t see them so much.  The dog added his voice, but he can’t really carry a tune.

Today I photographed butterflies on a raspberry bush.  They were thick.  Eight or ten species were out today.


I chased a variegated fritillary for a while.  I got a photo I like, but not the one I wanted.

The birds were out and were singing.  Red admirals danced in the sunlight.

The family is fine.  Everyone is healthy.

It is nearly summer.  Life is good.

I feel wealthy.

    That’s the kind of wealth you can’t buy and is the most valuable of all!

    I echo Finn’s words on that, a beautiful post.
