A few of my favorite things

I've been away -- and while it's good to be back, I have to say that I really, really enjoyed being away.

A few of my favorite things from the past few days...

Trees nearly in bloom .... runners .... soft breezes .... hot sunshine .... looking up into blue, blue sky at beautiful buildings ... a single, decadent chocolate-covered strawberry ... reading without interruption ... walking and walking and walking .... feeling like I fit .... reading the newspaper with a cup of coffee ... watching people .... tears on my cheeks .... being anonymous .... flying .... street vendors with lovely flowers ... shopping .... massage .... exotic food .... spending time alone .... sitting down and just sitting ... exploring ... laughing .... dreaming .... discovering hidden places ... not having a reason to check my e-mail .... smiling at strangers .... reconnecting with people .... chocolate on a park bench .... having poetry re-enter my mind ... re-discovering passion for life .... not being scheduled ....

Trees almost in bloom? Then obviously you didn't vacation in Michigan.;-)

Hey -- if you are so inclined, you're invited to participate in a Lutheran blog carnival ...March 31st I'll be doing a roundup at my place of posts on the topic of Lutheran spirituality. This is our maiden effort; hoping to get lots of participants.

Oooh, it sounds like you had a lovely break. And congrats on the changes to your blog template-- looks lovely! My first few attempts at adding links and altering the template were disastrous, so I am mighty impressed. :-)

Welcome back, and I hope you'll be able to sustain your regenerated spirit!
