Spring Is in the Air

On my walk back to school to teach my afternoon classes, I had the delight of seeing brand new yellow blossoms springing up on the trees. Aren't they lovely? I can hardly wait to photograph what it looks like when they all burst out in glorious profusion.

I really enjoy my walks to and from school each day. I pass so many beautiful sights each time, and I find myself leaving home earlier than I need to each day, just so I can savor my walk a bit more, and have that extra moment to enjoy something that catches my eye.

Stumbled in and just wanted to say hi. Great blog, keep it up!

I would like to invite you to leave a comment on my blog. At my blog I ask people to tell me about their day in seven words or less. Just leave me a comment with your seven words, you can do it anonymously. If you'd rather not, then have a nice day.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
