Anyway, on Sunday morning we had breakfast with Allen's long time friend, Matt. It was so enjoyable to see him and spend some time with him. He and Allen have a great friendship, and I liked watching their interactions. It made me smile. : ) It made me think that no matter how fast time goes by, some important things remain untouched, as in their friendship.
When we returned home, we were greeted by an array of new garden blossoms. What a wonderful surprise!
Dianthus flowers (hot pink)
Rosario Iris (my favorite because it shares its name w/my late Father.
Sometimes, going away refreshes one's spirit. I think for Allen and I this is true. We were able to re-visit the town where he lived for almost ten years. The shops are fun, and the whole town is...well...highly creative.
The above quote came from a Jackson Browne day time calendar. I believe the analogy is a good one. If life is to be compared to a stove, then why not live juicy, and on all four burners. If you have more than four burners, then go for it. : )
