I honestly thought it would be a piece of cake, a walk in the park, literally. I saw myself walking, hiking, exploring, visiting and learning. Like taking bird watching classes and going on trips with Elder Hostel.
Every time! Every time I am surprised: the first fat, proud, noisy robin; the first warm sunny day with a blueberry sky and no clouds; a strong, still cold, damp breeze; and the colors. What magnificent colors: blue, yellow, pink, lilac, to say nothing of green becoming green again. Every single time, Nature does an astounding job and my heart leaps with joy. I smile, laugh out loud, and want to celebrate. SPRING!
