on days like today it is so important for me to be aware gratitude
what i wanted to do was let the day slip by unnoticed, let my camera sit idle on my desk,
ignore the world. . .
but out we went for just a few minutes and i noticed:
the earth is so green right now and the rain falls steady and hard, it dances on the roof and pours into the rain barrel which is overflowing into the yard as the wind blows gently. the rain drops look like tiny stings of light, all lined up in perfect rows on the tree limbs, and spring buds are everywhere. bit fat worms take to the driveway, and the dog leaves footprints in the carport when we come back in. he shakes and his tags jingle and i ask him if it was worth it; he wags his tail in reply.
i understand without a doubt, that we both feel better now. . .
