I recall how the barest kiss of light squeezed in between the gaps of the red barn boards as I hid inside among the bales of sweet hay piled in abundance while a kitten clamored to be fed a bird flitted near the rafters. Enclosed in warmth, in a ceremony of simplicity I devoured the stillness, tasted the holiness of that saving moment.
