Light and Breath

Light and Breath

The cold and the light took our breath away.

Our introduction to Florence, Oregon began with

a cold afternoon in the forested beauty of Jesse Honeyman State Park -

our trailer up on jacks, our tire in need of repair.

The unmistakable hiss of escaping air had greeted us as we backed into our campsite;

then the ranger greeted us with the news that we had to move campsites once our tire was fixed.

While waiting for Les Schwab to return with our tire and watching our breath in the afternoon light,

we filled the hours with silly games

and a fungi hunt,

attempting to keep warm in the wintry air.

The evening brought a tire repaired and a road-trip first:

backing our 36-foot home into a wooded campsite

at dark.

While our children were sent to the picnic table to keep out of the way,

Adam backed in

with the light of a flashlight and my phone to guide him.

The rest of our time in Florence

proved less eventful and full of beauty.

Mornings of quiet cold and filtered light

blazing light and azure skies.

We savored the local coffee

shopped Antique Row and local thrifts,

and enjoyed the waterfront's colorful history and charm.

And now weeks down the road,

I found each of us settling in

to this new way of living,

finding our place and our voice

in a shared home on wheels.

We are learning to 

to live together with joy

to look at one another with more appreciative eyes.

to breathe in the Light

and thrive in the tight spaces.
