A Day to Celebrate

I can easily make the argument that every day is one to celebrate – today it just feels more so than usual. It was just a quietly, wonderfully spectacular day. Nothing happened to warrant such joy – just life. Ordinary life.

It started with a wonderful walk in the fog. It progressed with work getting done on time – and getting done well. I even completed most of my book submission. I love the feeling of tying up loose ends. This afternoon, after all the work had been done and after delicious dark chocolate had been eaten, Abby and I had another lovely walk – a long one this time and through sunshine filtering through the trees.

It was warm enough today to begin thinking about spring – surely the beginnings can’t be more than a week or so away. Buds on willows are almost ready to turn green. Nature is in the uncertain sleep state – almost awake – just hit the snooze button for the first time.

It’s after 5 p.m. and the sky is still light. I have a deep internal sense of happiness and pent-up exciting – knowing that fabulous things are going to happen momentarily. Going hiking tomorrow in a new area. Yes!
