A Gem Full of Living Things

She watched the horses prancing through the fields below and smiled. The sun’s rays warmed her and the breeze was barely cool enough to notice. Lunch had been a plate of carrots, potatoes, and chicken sprinkled with rosemary. Now, in the afternoon daylight, she let herself wander the hills and take in the land.

The plains were beautiful and green and the mountains beyond them were a dreamlike backdrop she once imagined could only exist in movies.

She sighed and sat down, running a hand down her dress to prevent it from bundling beneath her. Days like these made her believe this whole world was made simply to exist. No higher meaning. No explanations. A place where she could simply sit in the sage grass and look at all the wonderful things and be happy. It was all peaceful. Even the storm crawling over the mountains was beautiful.
