“st. patrick’s day is an enchanted time –
a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.”

today we found a beautiful flower that survived
under the snow and ice and rain and arctic temperatures of january.
were very surprised.
it must be enchanted.
“the only words that ever satisfied me as describing nature
are the terms used in fairy books, charm, spell, enchantment.
they express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery.”
-g. k. chesterton
bee whisperer’s mom,
on our late summer walk
by the river.
my grandson/ her son,
on our early summer trip
by the lake.
genetics, gentle compassion, curiosity and nature at play.
“it is in our genes to understand the universe if we can,
to keep trying even if we cannot,
and to be enchanted by the act of learning all the way.”
― lewis thomas
