And so April ends with my lawn greening and violets popping up everywhere. I am feeling more settled in, more energetic, recovered from the unexpected bumps in my road, looking ahead to May with optimism.

Today I make the pilgrimage north to see Mom. I take a bag full of spring clothes to brighten her wardrobe, and find her in good spirits. We walk outside to enjoy the sunny day, me grateful that she still brightens with recognition when she sees me. Afterwards I stop by to visit my brother and sister-in-law, and we relax into conversation on the deck under their weeping cherry tree. A lovely languid day.

More flowers every day, some boisterous and showy and some, like these, more delicately pensive. Lunch today with my best friends, distributing little presentes from Rio, reconnecting, reassuring them that I am indeed recovering day by day.

Spring rains, full of dreams.

week 446 ~ the glass still half full

the glass still half full
I came home thirsty
Rio’s last riddle
the glass still half full
I drank logical
and yet conversely
the glass still half full
I came home thirsty

The trees are blooming– always a sweetly incongruous moment in spring. These ancient stately creatures festooned like senior citizens with too much lipstick, dressing up for a long anticipated party.

My garden continues to burst forth with flowers, coming in order, a new blooming appearing as the old one fades.
