Layers

IMG_0012I dimly listened to Vivaldi ~ was it yesterday morning’s cold, grey drive? “That must mean it’s spring,” I thought from my cocoon of projects and due dates.

Today the slanting California sun invited me to un-rumple and dry out.  Squatting to admire the succulents along the walkway and inhaling the late fragrance of daphne ~  just Being Out of Doors ~ noticing the white wisteria is beginning to open and the skinny kids across the street are taller.  Seeing the light dance lime green through everything in the front yard.

Well, time to put away those winter worries and take off some of the layers of insulation.  I feel almost myself again.

  1. I love this. Warm weather is something I know makes all the difference in me feeling like myself. Thank heaven it’s nearly spring!

  2. Beautiful…’slanting California sun invited me to un-rumple and dry out’ I liked that…and I liked that the skinny kids across the street are taller. It is just like coming out of hibernation…or cocoon…just like you described. And then…shaking off the layers. As I said at the beginning…beautiful! Jackie http://familytrove.blogspot.com/

  3. This is beautiful. I love your word choice – ‘unrumple’ is my new favorite word. I also love the passing of time being marked by ‘the skinny kid across the street.’! Great slice!! Thanks.

  4. Breaking open to spring. Love this beautiful image. I imagine the skinny kids, taller, and the lime green light dance. My purple wisteria is blooming and covered with bumblebees. Loving spring!
