Scenes From The Weekend
"Ten times a day something happens to me like this--some strengthening throb of amazement--some good, sweet, empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and it is built entirely out of attentiveness." -Mary Oliver
Those words lingered around me all weekend. There was a lot of rain--buckets worth--but plenty of sunshine, too. Time with the ducks, the trees, the skies. A movie at the local cinema, some writing, a clean house, and crepes for Saturday brunch. We attended an intimate wedding in the city on Sunday. Round the room dancing, raucous laughter, delicious food and drink.
I feel full.
How are you?
