Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Stalwart remnants of Summer
Take on a new life

Optimistic sun-seekers
Awaiting the Spring

    Yes. Our neighborhood has a small shared seasonal pool. Just opened and how exciting to discover that the patio furniture had been cleaned, painted, and new cushions.

    Your prose says it for so many of us. Well done. 🌍

  3. I love this – lawn chairs are definitely a sign of spring (one that I will be breaking out this weekend – I try not to think of the part where I have to clean them first).
