Ahhhhhhh …

Friday took awhile to come this week, and I am beyond ready for it.

Need to recoup, regroup … and mow the grass!

And beyond that …

I’m hoping for some rain for the new plants that are dotting all of our various gardens – sending down all their tiny new rootlets into the soil – working to take hold – no small task.

And for Obama’s words in Cairo to take hold in hearts around the world so that new perspectives can be brought to bear on ancient impasses.

And for me to slow down and be present in my here and now.

And for Willie to remain mobile and comfortable for as long as his heart keeps beating.

    A poem for you on this belated Friday:

    Five Oranges

    Nothing is lost.
    One by one
    the five big oranges
    in a low bowl on the oak floor
    a five-petalled flower
    missing a petal each day…
    This morning
    one orange
    rests deep in its center
    and the bowl
    turns to a blossom.

    –Robert Sund
