Let us dig in our gardens and not be elsewhere;
Let us take long walks in the open air…
Let us bathe in the rivers and lakes…
Let us indulge in games…
Let us be more simple: simple and true in
our gestures, in our words, and simple and true
in our minds above all. Let us be ourselves.
Just too pretty a day to get any writing done.
We spent the day
throwing the ball for Chewy 50 times easy
walking barefoot in the cool grass
making bead bracelets in the driveway
+ drinking a cold beer as the sun went down.
It was a joyful day.
If you're reading this:
Drop your shoulders
give yourself a break
+ just for tomorrow,
one day at a time
