Outside





While other places are experiencing winter's full blast, here in Florida the azaleas are already blooming. The camellia bush is loaded with buds that once opened will weigh down every branch. The temperature is 70 degrees.  Indeed it is the kind of weather that calls me outside...

… where the children play across the street
… where the dog digs holes and chases lizards
… where the flag waves in the breeze
… where the clover overtakes the flowerbeds
… where the neighbor's cat lazily naps in the sun
… where green stems peek through the dirt 
… where I sit in the grass and feel alive. 


“If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it.” 


What does treasures does await outside your door?
Merry ME

Please send some of your warm temperatures our way.....it's very wet here, up to 5 degrees C today, not quite a heat wave.

So today bring the outside inside.

Have a great week!
