kinder finds the perfect place right in the middle of the great wide open.
“science has never drummed up
quite as effective a tranquilizing agent
as a sunny spring day.”
-w. earl hall
back in the parks today
under a sparkling sun
happy smiling people
“spring will come and so will happiness. hold on. life will get warmer.”
huron river, gallup park, ann arbor, mi, usa
as our temps take a dip into the zero-ish range,
it is good to remember the importance of connection,
the joy of giving to others, and the comfort of the sun.
“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,
the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.
this crisp winter air is full of it.”
~john burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”
painting by: francesca rizzato – ‘Winter’s Tale’
two grandies reap the benefits of more light,
each in their own way.
“one benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by.”
― jeannette walls, The Glass Castle: A Memoir
the kinders celebrate the return of the sun
with no coats and fast feet and smiles a mile wide.
“i’m youth, i’m joy, i’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.”
-james m. barrie
when you find a perfect circle of ice
in the bottom of a sand pail
and hold it to the winter’s sun
things become crystal clear.
“there is a beauty and clarity that comes from simplicity that we sometimes
do not appreciate in our thirst for intricate solutions.”
-dieter f. uchtdorf
