Looking Ahead
Sometimes, nothing is happening. Sometimes, the only thing that gets me up in the morning is looking ahead to something good. Sometimes, that thing is simply summer.

Sometimes even that doesn't do that for me, especially when the sadness creeps into my bones. At those times, it is as if the color has been sucked from everything.Fortunately for me, this spring I have the first birthday of a grandson to which I can look forward. So, I am packing and, in the morning, I will leave to join the family in Ohio for the celebration. That should put some color in my cheeks.Paddle safe...

nothing wrong with a bit of black and white, sometimes it conveys better than color. Happy birthday
