March 14

As I type this, Alexi and his father are sitting on the couch watching super 8 hockey video footage from Alexi's childhood. If you weren't paying attention you might think it was footage of Abbott and Cal's latest game. As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Abbott had his first baseball practice of the season this evening -- a sure sign of spring. On the way home I asked him how it went; apparently, it was fantastic. There were conversations about parallel universes and 'real' invisibility cloaks and the like (no idea about the baseball).

Take a minute to read this note from Japan.

Enjoy your evening. xo

Lovely array of yellows in this image. I find your reference to "the more things change, the more they stay the same" comforting. I was needing a little comfort tonight. Thank you. Sweet dreams, Denise

Such a beautiful photo full of everything that's good about spring. My mind is so full of images from Japan that it's hard to keep going with everyday things.

Thank you, Lecia, for providing the link for the note in Japan. I wasn't sure where to donate and now I have my answers. Happy Pre-Spring to you and your family.

So glad to see "your" spring is arriving...We are hoping to see more of Autumn in the next couple of weeks. We have had the longest stretch of hot days AND nights (25 nights above 30degrees C. !
Thank you for connecting us with someone in Japan. It is the definition of surreal.. (which is used far too carelessly by celebrities these days!) watch all that incredible footage of natures destructive power from the distance of a t.v. screen and actual miles/kilometres. Reading the message from Elizabeth gives it a stark reality. I hope she and everyone else there finds warmth, shelter,food and peace again soon. xx

Ah, the real invisibility cloaks! :)
Nice yellows in your photo.

Do you love Tender as much as I?

Oh, and we would love a 'real' invisibility cloak, if you have any spares laying around. Thanks!

I worry sometimes that Sean doesn't have a boy to share things with as I do with our girls. I shouldn't, though.

Love the yellow dafodills. They are a great favorite in our house!
