Sheltering in place

"Every now and again

  take a good look at something not made with hands

 - a mountain, a star, the turn of a stream.

  There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all,

   the assurance that you are not alone in the world." Sid Lovett

Finding solace in my garden

The trees and shrubs were getting dressed in fresh vibrant colors.


The birds practiced their melodies before the Spring opening ceremony.


The squirrels jumped up and down the branches and rooftops, in a playful celebration of life and renewal. 


I took a deep breath, confident the world was preparing to come out from its deep crisis, bloom brighter and sing louder than ever before.
