Read the rest of T.S. Eliot's Wasteland here
Yesterday, I took time to see the marvels April brings in my garden. I was stunned by all the buds about to burst on my Star Jasmine.
I remember being young and so impressionable when I first heard a lecture on T.S. Eliot's, Wasteland. I studied humanities in college. That's what we did, talk about poems, paintings, and music. I think of his words, when I soak in the beauty around me. In a strange way it is cruel. So, pure, so good....and yet there will be times ahead that do not resemble April.
The second picture in this post was taken yesterday. This is the same spot today....little by little....
I wish I could tell you I had been away in the Caribbean, or off to Paris, but the truth is, I was just holding down the fort being a working mom. It's been a busy time of year. Lucie who was three years behind on reading has since caught up in her new school and is receiving awards and doing well. Lucas just received an award from the superintendent of our schools for a perfect score on his state testing in math. They are both signed up for summer camp and excited.
Looking forward to showing my latest great find! You won't believe it....pure luck!
I have missed you all and I am happy to have some free time over "vacation." Which reminds me. Today while I was feeling sad that I am not doing anything fun over our Easter Vacation (I sound just like a teenager!). I posted on Facebook not be jealous that I was having my carpets cleaning and taking the kids to the dentist for vacation today. I was pouting...waiting for the carpet cleaning people. When they arrived I had to move my car for the carpet van. No shoes. No make up. Wet hair. Glam. My young, single, neighbor stopped her car to say hello. She asked about Lucie and Lucas and then, I asked her what she was up to today. She said, actually she was leaving for India in a few hours. Then two weeks in Scandinavia, business. I waved good-bye in my barefoot in my driveway and just had to laugh..........
