friday || play

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” 
― Alan W. Watts

today i want to remember. . . 

the chatter of the birds this morning, the long conversation i had with my sister, the first blossoms on the peas, an hour at the river with the dog, wildflowers and blackberry blooms, sun breaks, the last day of school, the start of a new book, a call from Jordan last night, the first good watermelon of the season and tiny carrots up in the garden. . .
