Celebrating a Year

You never know who you will meet on the streets when you go to a Honk parade! A glorious annual gathering of funky marching bands from across the country, this year including an all-women samba band from Brazil! It’s a beautiful sunny day in the high 60s– a welcome change from our spate of rainy low-50s days– and B. and I enjoy the sights and sounds.

Today is my son’s birthday. Soon to be mine and the anniversary of the start of this poetry and photography blog. As you can see I have been absent, as I have had a hard time celebrating this year for many reasons. I will fill in some moments from the past 4+ months, because they belong in this memoir, because I have photos and verses and some delightful serendipity to post. But the task of beginning in June seems so daunting each time I think to begin, that I delay and more time slides past. So I am starting today as a promise to myself that I will try again on my birthday, to fill in the blanks and going forward continue to celebrate the daily images and weekly poems that still fill my life with joy. Today my group recorded in this lovely location. We are putting down tracks for a CD of the compositions of one of our members. All went well.

A pure white bleeding heart– a new version of an old favorite– seen on my walk today.

The variety of color and shape of the newly arriving flowers– almost daily now– proclaims, louder than the weather that still remains cold and rainy, that spring is truly with us and summer is not far away.

As June arrive so do the buds of the clematis near my front door– dramatically announcing the wonder they will soon bring.

A wash of impressionistic pastels delights the eye as the month of May draws to a close.

Jack in the Pulpit, blooming in my shade garden once more. In the evening my group plays in a lovely historic house for an art night before an enthusiastic audience. All goes well, and we go out together for dinner and celebration.
