It’s been nearly three weeks since I’ve been at Lake Waughop in Steilacoom, but it turns out everything is just as I left it.
The snapdragons are as beautiful as ever.
Cardinal Meadowhawks patrol the water.
Baby Wood Ducks
are still watched by their mothers,
while Mt. Rainier continues to tower over its realm
knowing everything is just as it’s meant to be, still perfect in its moment.
