I finish packing today for my early morning start tomorrow. I am not someone who does well before 7:00 AM so everything needs to be set tonight. Play choro with P, walk in the windy chill, quite a retreat from the warmth of the last week. It’s always hard to leave, to be in transition, but it will be so good to arrive. I probably won’t post until I get home, so have a good few days!

A lovely sunny walk today. I’m going to visit my daughter’s family in a couple of days– feeling happier about the plane now that I’m past my second shot. And it will be good to see them!

Everywhere I look, a plethora of color. Working on music, smiling at the sunny weather that is bringing out a riot of colorful blooms.

A day as sunny as the daffodils.

The trees put on their spring dresses. Not intended to last long, these bowers of pink suddenly showing up everywhere. Just a passing phase, one worthy of notice. Signalling there is no need to equivocate any more– winter is truly gone, and it’s really spring.

Miniature tulips, seen on my walk today. Writing music, phone calls with friends– there is a hint of joy in the air.

Leaves follow blossoms, the high temperatures will be around 60 degrees all week, and the lows above freezing. Were this not New England perhaps I would think of planting my lettuce and basil seeds. But nights are not to be counted on around here until next month. There is enough happiness in watching nature unfold as it will.

A cheerful sunny outdoor Easter brunch with friends, all at some stage on the vaccine train. Soon we will be able to gather without masks, maybe even indoors, or drive places together. These simple pleasures, taken for granted in the past, now beckon from the future, as the prospect of enjoying them once again sparkles distantly on the horizon.
