Last Night when I got home, I did some yardwork….still wondering where all of the leaves are coming from. When I finished, there was still plenty of daylight left, so I decided to read the newspaper on the front porch. As I began to read the first article on page one…I closed my eyes and listened. To my left, way down the street, I could here several boys playing basketball. To my right, a robin was singing a happy song. Way out in front of me from the neighborhing condos I heard the soft sounds of music playing. I could only imagine that one of the neighbors was washing his/her car. Then I took in the fragrant scent of charcoal burning and wondered what was going on that grill for dinner. I opened my eyes and could see folks walking the streets, kids riding their bikes, tulips sprouting from the ground and my grass beginning to turn green. Yes, it must be the beginnings of spring. March 21st is just around the corner, but we can already see, hear and smell its early arrival!
