The walking distance covered today
Is more than yesterday
The weight of creation
Is heavier every day
To bloom and to prune
Is an effort, work is always incomplete
You don’t have to apologize
You will finish it one day.
note: A neighbor gave us daffodil buds a few days ago.
note: cloudy, cool spring day in Napa River.
I stopped by to look
at the crab apple and swollen river
I could not resist
to take some pictures
pardon my lack of experience.
You add and subtract words,
take away and add stories.
But what do you do with emotions,
real and imagined?
You ride a boat and go fishing
while your cousins play ball.
You play with a trout and the trout wins,
you return home for a blueberry pie.
Why should not life be thriving?
A solitary bird in darkening sky
The day before spring
The mountain and the sea define the table,
language creates the neighborhood.
How many ways can you cook a pig?
“Up through the chimney and out, the smoke mingled with the mist that was gathering speed, sweeping in thicker and thicker, obscuring things in parts-half a hill, then the other half. The trees turned into silhouettes, loomed forth, were submerged again. Gradually the vapor replaced everything with itself, solid objects with shadow, and nothing remained that did not seem molded from or inspired by it.”- Kiran Desai

I finished reading Birth of a Dream Weaver
Books I’m reading. I added 2 new books: Sapiens, Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Harari and Absolutely on Music, Conversations with Seiji Ozawa by Haruki Murakami.
I borrowed both of them from our county library. Sapiens is a book, an ebook to read and MP3 to listen to. Sapiens is on the reading list of Barack Obama and Bill Gates. Mark Zuckerberg put the book on his online book club.I downloaded Sapiens, an ebook to read.
I enjoying these 2 new books.
Mrs. Abstract and I caught respiratory bugs. Hard for me to think and write but fortunately does not prevent me from reading books.
