Now is the Before

Dearly Beloved, 

Grace and Peace to you.

Before the neighborhood this hillside was wilderness where I used to play.

I wish I had a picture. 

After the paint job I wish I'd taken a Before picture to lay along the After

to marvel at the difference. 

It's always after the remodel, after the fire, the new addition,

that we wish we'd thought to get a Before, sometimes to remember and sometimes 

because we don't,

but now it's too late. 

Friend, now is the Before.

Notice this now, while you can, because it won't be this way forever

and whether you rejoice or mourn you'll want to have noticed,

to have been here.

Deep Blessings,

Steve Garnaas-Holmes
