corners of heaven

while travelling, it occurred to me that we
make our roadmap of heaven here on earth.
what we choose to do. how we live it.

above, a photo that looks to me to be
a corner of a heaven: valéry lorenzo's studio.
there are other corners of heaven that seem
to have been showing up. perhaps it helps to notice them.

in our tiny slice of california, it is hot and beautiful.
i note that certainly (though it is in need of
a little tlc and a lot of water) one corner happens, thankfully,
to be right in our backyard.

good to be home.
