The first cherries of the year are always the most memorable to me. Cherries! I bought these this morning, shipped from California, and they aren't as delicious as the locally grown ones will be that will appear in about a month. But still, I ate so many I got a stomachache.
Soon, our peonies will be in bloom. I saw some for sale this morning, also, but I didn't buy any.
Tonight at Cal's baseball game I sat just behind the catcher. I overheard one of the catchers tell a coach from the other team, 'I'm the best player on the team. I got a home run.' Soon, tact and self doubt and other filters will insure that that level of bravado or self-confidence or honesty, whatever, will seldom, if ever be heard.
