Good Morning

And on this uneventful morning, the soft rain makes the oak outside my window dip enough for the early light to stream across the braided mountain hanging on my wall. Now the thread on the border swells with the sun and seems for the moment the source of all strength. Then the sun steps higher in the sky, and the thread that holds all things together goes back to work.

  5. Sun on almost anything feels good when you’ve been deprived of it all winter.

    this morning we noticed fine particles on top of the iced car’s windows…I said to dear hubby the pollen has laid down upon the ice…later in the day I went and looked at the cars covered in fresh yellow pollen, continuously exploding from the trees exhales …
