“So, how long is a stretch?”

“Long as a piece of string, I guess.”

“Sorry, that’s the wrong question.”

“And the correct question is?”

“Give me a second, okay, got it. How old is a stretch?”

I have written of this before in posts that speak of the magic, and also of the deep longing and sense of home I feel in these sacred places. Living in New Hampshire, where the land, itself, is no less ancient, but the magic has always felt more illusive and gentle, at best, I have recently made a vow with myself to find it.
