Alone in the pool tonight as evening started to settle in, I had a chance to look up and caught sight of the gorgeous evening light at tops of trees. The gloaming, for sure, as the light was absolutely golden as it hit the leaves. As I floated, drifted, tread water, watching the simple beauty of my favorite time of day (which I rarely see evidence of in this house), a movement caught my eye. A butterfly, a monarch by the shape and pattern on the wings, was dancing about the back yard, about 15 feet above ground. Wondrous beauty.
