There's a lot of things I'm going to miss about my house and I think of them as I drive from home to work, while I walk Jonah, or when I'm sitting on my porch steps. I'll miss driving through the twin villages of Newcastle and Damariscotta, which I've been lucky enough to have been able to walk to. I'll miss watching the seasons change and the spring migration of birds, especially the Great Blue Herons in the pond and the Blackbirds. I'll miss my lovely hydrangea, which will probably be spectacularly beautiful this year, and I will especially miss the peepers singing at night.
Of course, I know I'll find new birds to watch at my new house, new paths to walk,
and new things to love and report and take pictures of. But for now, I'm making note of these
things that have brought me joy. Hopefully, the next person who lives
here will find as much peace and beauty as I have.
