GOOD THINGS ON A SATURDAY IN SPRING

Eating blueberry cake hot out of the oven

Sitting on a sun-warmed bench at a playground with my face turned up to the light and the heat

Watching Martin patiently play with a little 4-year-old girl who had attached herself like a limpet, and marveling over how GROWN-UP he suddenly looked

Rocking out to great old 90s tunes in the car

Listening to blackbirds sing

Getting a backrub by shoulderblade from my daughter (very weird, though)

Seeing a stork stalk gawkily along the edge of a field

Walking outside in the clear cold night air, where the paving stones sparkle with frost and looking up at the half-moon and stars

Thinking that it's only a week until I go to the States
