What the Gnats Are Really For

When I was on my evening walk, possibly exercising my arms and lungs more than any other body part–as I waved and blew at gnats–I realized I couldn’t open my mouth without risk of swallowing those ever-present insects.

It was when I looked around, mouth shut tight, that it occurred to me.


If only for a moment or two.   And what I saw was glorious.  Spring has sprung, and summer isn’t far behind.

And it sure beats a postprandial snack of gnats.


Love and wishes for a nice evening walk to all.

    1. Thank YOU. For reading and for taking time to say hello. The truth is I was about to say something less than delightful and beauty-filled and I found myself with a mouthful of gnats. Point taken. I still don’t like the gnats, but I am seeing them as a sign of trying to think before I open my mouth. Literally AND figuratively. 🙂
