Spring day, the first of the year!

My body has been yearning for some warmth and sun. There have been days that tease the system, but nothing that makes you smile just because.

Today was that day! The sun was so gosh-darn bright, I was squinting. And the air was so warm that I had to pull back my hair, so the breeze could cool my neck. Sun kissed! Perfect.

Jill and I started our day (like yesterday) at our community garden beds. We were so pleasantly joined by our favorite helpers: the neighborhood kids! We were not even there for more than 30 seconds, when we were enthusiastically joined by about 6 kids, all excited to help us plant our garden beds. Life is so rejuvenating.

The morning went something like this:

Just wonderful. And we were just in time, the storm is on its way. The sky will soon be opening up and gardening too!

Here is some food for thought, from the new song Helplessness Blues by the Fleet Foxes:
"I was raised up believin'
I was somehow unique
like a snowflake, distinct among snowflakes
unique in each way you can see

And now after some thinkin'
I'd say I'd rather be
a functioning cog in some great machinery
serving something beyond me."
