Good Morning All the World. . . .I feel so expansive today.
Why? Because I am at home on The Cape, it is Spring, time for Passover and Easter and the Spring-time Full Moon. . . . . and
I feel so alive!
Yesterday, after classes, I packed up, collected Mme Bouvier and together we headed home to our special place in the world. Peter had arranged his schedule so he was able to clear out Thursday morning. . . ahead of the Easter-Passover weekend.
The "Florida-type temps" of a few weeks ago retreated with a SNAP! which is confusing to the psyche. LOL Bright sunshine, like it usually is in Paradiso. . . .you know, that special quality of sun which intensifies all the colors. . . .like it does to this patch of tulips at the corner of the porch aka veranda. . . . Nice. Temps will be around 50*f. . . even to the mid-50*s. . . . We have a visitor this morning. . . . . . .
a brilliant cardinal singing his heart out. . . .inviting a duller-colored
lady cardinal to join him. The males are so much more flashing in their scarlet feathers, and their song is far more alluring. Every now and then, out of the corner of my eye I see a flash of red among the shrubs near the house and the scrub-pine edging along the Dunes. And then there is a brilliant flash of sound which stills everything. . . much like Jonathan Antoine startling Simon into stilled awe. . . .
Today, Good Friday, will be a quiet day here chez O'Shea. . . and around 3 o'clock we will be with our neighbors at the parish church for services. Nice to be quiet this morning, doing nothing, just soaking up the ambiance. . . .
More to come. . . . .Justin
