I was amazed because just today my memory was jogged by several things that happened in my today that linked directly to memories and experiences with Arley. Early today I was sharing with a client how Arley and I made bread with his bread machine and how the taste of it warm from baking wasn't the only benefit, that discussions of early memories and the fragrance wafting down the hall inspired several neighbors to comment. Then on my way home i stopped to watch egrets using binoculars from my car window on a wet land area. I was given Arley's scope by Becky and I wished I'd had it to see these distance birds fish. Arley and I watched many birds together and i would keep my eye out and share stories of what I saw on my way to meet him. After he passed It was quite a while before I got used to the idea that I didn't have a interested party to relay my sitings with. Still on many occasions Arley comes to mind. He shares my enthusiasm with nature in spirit.
