Spring Time Pause

Random Hearts- Guest Heart Thursday- April 12, 2012

Backyard Garden, Blacksburg, VA, April 11, 2012

Laying in the dirt
to catch the last of the evening light
My dog snuggles close -
 her head resting on my foot.

I type this on my three year old laptop. Duct tape holds the connection cord into the computer. It has lost its sheen, where my base of my palm rests on the keyboard. There is a folder, named 2012 Hoover.  This years, non-client photos, live there. All 1,567 of them.(And yes they are backed up on two external hard drives, and copied onto CD's-) Each photo, a pausing to see.  I pause a lot.  It has been such a lovely beginning of 2012.

And yes there is a heart shape hidden within the main flower. Sometimes we overlook the perfect things in our lives.

Way behind on my monthly hearts--- but in the mean time here is one for now-

A couple of clouds in a winter sunset-
leave just enough room for a sunny heart.
