sunday walk.

The change from storm and winter to serene and mild weather, from dark and sluggish hours to bright and elastic ones, is a memorable crisis which all things proclaim. It is seemingly instantaneous at last. Suddenly an influx of light filled my house, though the evening was at hand, and the clouds of winter still overhung it, and the eaves were dripping with sleety rain. I looked out the window, and lo! where yesterday was cold gray ice there lay the transparent pond already calm and full of hope as in a summer evening...

the silent piano.

This morning, I made a slow stagger into the kitchen to make myself a cup of green tea.  I was in desperate need of something to help ease this cough and sore throat that have taken an unwelcome residence in my body these last few days.  Dazed and nearly incoherent, I gazed over at the piano in the other room and was stopped dead in my tracks.  The early morning sunlight had cast a warm, luminous orange glow through the curtain, into the room and over the piano.  It was almost magical--as close to magic as our humble little apartment will ever see.  The bench was turned at just the slightest angle, pointing away from the piano, which seemed to whisper softly, "Here, come sit.  I've made room for you."

Sadly, I had to decline.  "Thank you, but not today,"  I said.  "I haven't the energy."

Today, the piano stands silent, but finds it's portrait posted on the world wide web for all to see.  Silly, isn't it?

O, but the sun does such wondrous, magnificent things.  This morning it rose and tonight it sets.

New home: The Morning's Brew

It's a new day and what better time is there to begin a new blog?  After starting my old blog on a whim just over one-year ago, I've decided to move on with a new name in a new direction.

Within this past year, I've gained a better understanding of the things that I enjoy and have discovered more about becoming the kind of person that I want to be in life.  I've formed new interests in my photography, cooking, and music teaching and I'm excited to share my walk with you.

Cheers to new days and new beginnings.  I'm so thankful to have you by my side.
