The Moon, The Leaves and The EarthWorms
The moon last night was absolutely beautiful. I only wish I knew how to use my camera to capture such an amazing sight. I also wish I knew when the cold would stop. I know! I know! I'm a sissy. Can you imagine if I lived up North? How would I survive the cold? I assumed I couldn't but I've been told it's a different kind of cold up north, it's a dry cold compared to here. Dry cold, wet cold..... I don't care. I just want it to go away. I want the spring warmth to and the sunlight to warm up the day and night to about 75 degrees for weeks and weeks. I want to see flowers and a rainbow of colors all over the place. I want to hear the bird chirping and the leaves rustling at my window in the mornings. I want to hear kids playing ball and riding bikes on the street. I want to go out into my garden and put my hands deep into the dirt. I want to feel earth, roots and earthworms between my fingers. I want to watch seedling mature into flowers. I want to smell roses, magnolias, rosemary, basil...... I want....Spring. Why does Winter and Summer feel so long, but Spring and Fall feel so short.
