Today was a sunny day, a good setting for the first day of spring.
The air was chilly as Bill and I set off for a walk
along the edge of the lake in our town.
Looking up, we could see buds on some trees, and the sky was a brilliant blue.
I could imagine the transformation that will soon occur, as the neutral landscape
transforms into every possible shade of green.
In one place, a trail led to a small patch of beach, where a mom and her child sat on the cold sand.
Like all of us, I'm sure they felt the hope and expectation in the air ~
warmth, growth and pleasurable days to come.
