Every man dies. Not every man really lives. ~Braveheart
Breath sweeps in with the wind
and rolls out with the tide.
The world is open to you.
Choose how you will live this day.
This is your life; live it fully.
Living in the Gap
March 20, 2012 – Yard Work
Spring has brightened my yard with new growth; the green of grass, leaves, and flower shoots and the white, blue, purple, pink, and yellow petals popping up everywhere. The dead leaves lay curled and withered beneath spring. I removed the wasted debris in one of the flower beds and watched the colors intensify as the bed came to life. I mowed the back yard, inhaling the scent of freshly cut grass and choking on pollen. I looked down to see my legs had turned green from grass cuttings…a few days too late for St. Patrick’s Day, but alas I did get that “green skin” my Big Mama claimed I had!
