A view from the tent.
There is joy to be found in the embracing of opposites.
Spring seems all the sweeter following a harsh winter. 
A glass of iced tea tastes more heavenly after mowing the lawn in muggy August.
Kicking off your shoes and putting your feet up feels more sublime after a good day's work.
And a long, leisurely, hot shower equals ecstasy after a weekend of camping, especially in October.
Where there's a yin, there's a yang.

   Our annual camping trip last weekend embraced the opposites of wet and dry, as a 30 percent chance of rain became 100 percent reality for a couple hours on Saturday night. We were prepared, tarps up, before the (relatively) brief deluge hit.
   And the fire never died.
   Hallelujah.

  1. I like the view from the tent. Fall reigns in all of its colorful glory.
