lill sweet dress

It is too beautiful a day today to believe in anything less--
not one crumb or crud. : )
Perspective is everything anyway.
Out around 8:30 am walking with my dog
its one of those days that you know marks
the end of winter and the opening of summer.

Everything shines in a clear warm light.
How is it where you are?
Hope for you a similiar feeling.
Nature is a Haunted House -- but Art --
a House that tries to be haunted.

Nazdar ( Hi ) - I really love E.Dickinson! And I envy you the walk with your dog. Every Thuersday and Friday I am teaching - so no walks, no fights and no kisses with the dog :-)

i love emily, too. i think she is not fully understood, yet!

i have been thinking to go back to teaching... it was so consuming, so many voices trying to write--but already conditioned to fear words, voice. some beautiful students, though, too. :)

It is so nice here, the streets are verge swept from grits and trash, the sun shines, adult and children feels expectant - it is spring!
And it is wonderful to take a walk with our dog (we have a small snautzer called Ruffa)
It is always interesting and fruitful to see your poetic pictures and to read yours cunning texts about life.
