In Gratitude: Part 3 August 21, 2015 Cat Babbie A welcome. Reaching out to connect. New neighbors, new town, new walls, new sounds. She left the islands, to find the heat of the desert. A house-cooling of sorts(it's too hot for housewarming). Firey orange, cooled with ocean dreams and turquoise hopes. My gift to another, to see, to share.
