I still can't get used to the new patches of sky that the tree removals revealed. It's not that they're different from any other patches of sky. It's just that they are where I don't expect them to be. It's thrown off the balance of my view, so the yard feels strange. Also there's a period of the afternoon when the metal roof of the garage beyond the back fence reflects sunlight instead of being draped with intricate patterns of shadows. I miss watching the shadows.
Because I was here where there is no large body of water in view I saw no boats, so I looked at pictures of boats.
