Before My Door

Every evening this week I've been coming home to this scene
... and it looks much better in person that in this photo. The daffodils are huge and have a light, clean scent. There's something so hope inspiring about daffodils. The crocuses have turned out a lot more splendid than I expected. Breck's sells these super crocuses. They are huge and beautiful. I love bulbs. I plant them everywhere I go. They are so reliable and virtually maintenance free – happy, energetic volunteers. Breck's makes the best. Here's one of the crocuses.
Current Fads
Listening. Playlist Recent Purchases (unpublished); lots of singing birds
Watching. Kate and Leopold (2001); Men in Trees; the sun coming up and those ruddy red clouds that transform into a steely blue and then become white languid wisps as if they were stretching out as they wake
Activity. wishing
Gadget. G4
News Source. the multiverse
Reading. The Secret of Platform 13 - Eva Ibbotson; A Wish Can Change Your Life - Gahl Sasson and Steve Weinstein; Writing the Breakout Novel - Donald Maas; GD USA; MacWorld; Fortune (Yes, I really am reading them all right now – I'm a reading addict. What can I say?)
i can't speak
i can't sleep
i'm a dumb waiter stuck between floors
waiting
waiting
waiting
pull really really hard and i will come crashing into you
ready to be filled

Oh the pretty. No garden at ours so I keep decorating the flat with lovely fresh tulips. Spring is wonderful, full of the promise of new beginnings.

PS we’ll try and catch you if / when you crash.
