when we set out on our hike
to see what spring animals
were out there
we thought maybe
we’d see a bear
awakening from a long winter’s nap
though we most likely
scared any creature
who happened to be in our oncoming path
or most anywhere in the vicinity
with our marching and laughing and yelling and jumping
we looked closer
and at last
found an animal
passed over by many
who was not afraid of us
just waiting to to be discovered
a single ant.
“life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.”
maybe the pool opens when the last of the snow vanishes?
“nature is never static. it is always changing. everything is in a constant state of flux.
nothing endures. everything is in the process of either coming into being or expiring.”

cold, morning rain does little but make one anxious to reach their destination, even if that is work or school. this innovative student solved the problem of hands free walking on one such campus morning in 1969. “U-M engineering student gary keck of detroit is too unconventional to raise an umbrella. he wards off the morning rain with a stylish sombrero. ole!”
“optimists are neither in denial nor naïve about challenges and difficulties in life.
they simply attend to and acknowledge the positive.”

it’s that time of year again
and the ants have stopped by for their annual visit.
as i now know that their newborns may outlive me at this point
i may just leave my cottage to them in my will.
