Beauty radiates
Pinkness flows
Cherry blossoms swirl

This week I reviewed Nehama Leibowitz: Teacher and Bible Scholar. I also reviewed Freud’s Sister-A Novel.

Hannah posted a great sounding vegetarian loaf recipe.

Leora’s post, Local Groups: Forming an Art, Writing or Tennis Group, is very helpful.

Robin’s photograph of Lupine Hill is stunning.

Mazal Tov! and Girlie-Girl-Grandie

Congratulations to my grandson, Anthony! He graduated high school (yesterday in Japan). From the photos I saw, he looked so handsome! I am so very proud of him. Mazal Tov! I wish I could have physically been there, but I was there in spirit.

I must share this tidbit between Emily and I. Remember she is five-years old.

Emily: Grammy how old will you be on your next birthday.

Me: 70 years old.

Emily: Wow, you will be almost 100 years old!

Me: Smiling, at Emily through the rear-view mirror.

Emily: Soon you will need a walker or a wheel chair to get around (said in all seriousness).

Me: Howling so hard tears came out of my eyes. I tell her she is so funny and makes me happy.

Emily: Howling also.

The two of us: Laughing and enjoying the moment.

I love that girlie-girl to pieces.

The photograph above was taken at the lake during my walk the other morning, on an overcast day.

Shabbat Shalom!

Cherry Blossoms Departing

It is time for Nature Notes Wednesday, and also Outdoor Wednesday.

The cherry blossoms are fading, falling off, dropping to the ground before my eyes, and leaving their branches bare and empty, where glorious beauty reigned for a short time. The season is so short, and once those beauties depart, what remains are the barren branches, lovely in their own right, and the blossoms that lay on the ground, also lovely in their fading glory.

Those gorgeous cherry blossoms are a testament to life, to how short it is in actuality, and also a testament for us to make the most of our time here on the planet.

Oh, and always remember to say I love you to those you love and cherish on a daily basis, including members of the natural environment.

Until I see your beautiful blossoms again, next year, just know I loved your glorious colors. They brought smiles to my face and to my heart.
