I woke up to an absolutely beautiful day today. The sun is actually brightly shining. Oh the blue sky! I’m so tired of gray right now. Today there was so much that just screamed life…even the shadows from the trees reminded me of early summer days where I woke up to a new summer vacation as a boy. Frogs are very vocal in our local pond. The ditch is frequented by Mallards, Canadian Geese, Red Winged Blackbirds, Western Meadow Larks and Pheasants…it’s a wonderful chorus line out there! This pheasant stretched out to feel the morning sun and see what’s going on…so beautiful. Our backyard felt so alive this morning. The greens and blues of the day thrilled me. Marks of Gabby’s passing made me smile. The day’s new Pansies seemed to smile at meand late spring symmetry made me feel at peace .
