Blues and Brights

not-quite Journaling, 34

Wee magics

growing
in and out of my hearth,

to celebrate spring, life
and all Nature
promises.

4/26/2022: On my way to the oncologist, I saw a tiny bouquet sprouting out of the trunk of a cherry blossom tree; on my way home, I noticed that someone had stuck a heart(ring) in the bark of a tree growing by the bus stop; when I got home, I found a ladybug exploring the window screen in my bedroom; all these seemingly small things, made my day a little better. Now, if I could only stop bleeding out of not so comfortable places, then “a little better” would morph into “just perfect”.

 

Unseasonable chills hold my garden hostage, but birdsong flies free.

 4/28/2022: A couple of days aren’t enough to achieve “just perfect”, but I’ve arrived at “so much better”. The cough still troubles me at night, but that’s manageable. The weather seems to finally be leaving the 30s behind (it’s supposed to be 30-something degrees Celsius tonight, then 40s and 50s!). Tomorrow, I get to spend quality time at the garden center (I need soil). And then… into the garden! I am sooo looking forward to that. 🥰

  10. Crohn's Disease existed before glyphosate but it was rare. I don't know what else triggers it besides being misdiagnosed celiac sprue. RFK reckons some chemical food additives might have that effect.

  12. It really is the little things in life that if we learn to see them and appreciate them we are truly "rich"

  14. These are the little "gifts" that brings a spring to our steps and a smile on our faces. It's good to see you are on the mend, and the weather is behaving. Your American sentence is just perfection. Nothing can put a willing heart down. :)

  20. I'm the same as I notice the little things that may pass others by and smile at them like it's a special secret left just for me. So glad you're feeling (mostly) better.
