Nature, art and everyday living. Finding joy in simplicity.
Friday, February 3, 2012
Finally, I was able to enjoy some of this good sunshine today. Finally, the wind calmed down a bit and it doesn't sound like someone is jumping on our roof (some of our shingles came loose from those big winds!) It's not that I haven't been out, it's more like I'm getting spring fever already. Purging closets this early? That's me. I'm almost expecting it to be warm, but I know it's still winter here. The geese are back at the pond today, the squirrels are out busily playing, and Emily wonders why there are books where her sunbeam is waiting for her to enjoy? A good day to be thankful for our simple joys, enjoying the sunshine is one of our favorites. What art offers is space ~ a certain breathing room for the spirit. John Updike
