Present and in Awe

"This is how we are supposed to be in the world: present and in awe." -Anne Lamott

These tulips already found their way to the garbage bin, but for seven beautiful days, they were alive and kicking.  Often, that's all it takes: a cheery bunch of curious flowers to remind me what it means to be here now.

Have a wonderful weekend. I've got absolutely nothing scheduled and am thrilled about it!
