Sunday Morning

I have news for you—
there are people who get up in the morning and cross a room
open a window to let the sweet breeze in
and let it touch them all over their faces and bodies.

    • We (the very orderly Swiss…. 😉 at least) rip open all windows every morning for quite a long while – I would never be able to ‘make the beds’ without knowing that they are fresh and clean smelling. And upon opening the windows fully I also can follow up the development of my jardinières with spring bulbs, tip my finger into the soil to check on their need of some water, pull / throw out appearing weeds, young snails….. see what the surroundings are up to – it’s very liberating and quite wonderful!
