4.21.14Caught this shot of the rhythm buttons on an ancient electric keyboard stuck in the corner of hall where some friends are playing. I especially love the rhythm possibilities of R. & Roll, B. Nova, and Latin R. And what is Metron? Twist or Rhumba anyone?

4.20.14Easter morning, sweet bread with eggs baked in and fruit salad for breakfast. A drive in the sun, my new lilacs budding up, reading the paper outdoors warmed by the sun. Languid, happy.

4.19.14Forsythia, usually the earliest harbinger of spring, is finally brightening my neighborhood landscape. I drive north for a rehearsal in the morning, and arriving home hear two friends laughing in my backyard. A v.cool surprise! We walk over to eat lunch at a local cafe, enjoying the balmy weather and a chance to catch up. Nice to take a break from my hectic present-and-forseeable-future.

4.18.14I prowl my backyard on the hunt for signs that spring has finally rounded a bend and is with us to stay. Here a viburnum on the verge of leafing out, and turning around a few daffodils are up and looking bravely about to bloom.

4.17.14And we return to sunny blue skies. The flowering trees are beginning to don their party dresses and wave their branches in the breeze.

week 288 ~ dance on close your eyes

with 2 comments

me.288dance on close your eyes
pain won’t go away
nevermind time flies

it takes a few tries
to find a new way
dance on close your eyes

and wait for blue skies
though spring just won’t stay
nevermind time flies

dreaming sometimes buys
respite for a day
dance on close your eyes

and soon they’ll realize
it’s your turn to play
nevermind time flies

life comes in your size
so jump in the fray
dance on close your eyes
nevermind time flies

4.16.14Yes, really– snow again. Scraping a coating of ice off the windshield, I console myself that this will be gone by afternoon. And so it is.
