Sweeping up piles up of pink petals on the patio,

I am glad to be home, the chicks are talking all the time, our birthdays are this month.  We used to ski in January, now it’s all sky and petals happening.  The birds are nesting and during the windstorm last weekend, our cat slept on the roof like Jesus on the boat.

What happened when you came home?

From London? On Friday? The baby chicks came.

Tobi and I went to hear Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvasov sing at the Broad Stage; we were carried on music.

Saturday: We painted the playhouse green and orange. I had a haircut.

Mark and I went to dinner with the Bonpanes and had cake.

Sunday:  We had birthday cake for lunch. We went to Disney Hall to hear Alexander’s Feast.

This week—work, reading on Wednesday, dinner with Ron Carlson Thursday, Magic Castle Friday.

Amid the chaos and work, the readings and books, the sweeping up piles of pink petals from the patio, we are finding that we can build ourselves a cathedral of the soul.
