It really did feel like a magical night. Friends joined us for the long walk through the woods and to the river at one of our favorite places. It was already nearly dark when we arrived on the beach. After lingering for a couple of hours, we walked the nearly two miles back in the dark. The moon was just bright enough that we could have gone without flashlights. I raced ahead so that I could stand on the trail in near silence and listen to the wind in the trees. I wondered if I would scare myself, being alone in the woods in the dark, but I wasn’t scared at all. It was just too peaceful, too beautiful: a perfect night.
My friend and midwife mentioned to me as we walked that she and her husband had been enjoying a show called “Call the Midwife.” We recalled that I gave her the book that the series was based on years ago. Now Jonny and I are watching season one. It’s available to watch on the PBS website until December 3rd. We’re totally hooked. “Gosh, It’s marvelous.” (Chummy is my favorite character.)
