When May is rushing over you with desire to be part of the miracles you see in every hour

I sat outside for a little while this afternoon, and I surely didn't want to go back to my office. It was So Damned Beautiful out there, just filling my heart all up with wanting to be right in it. The sky clear and blue and covered up at the edges with Manhattan buildings; the trees every shade of green. (Leaves right now are in a precious intermediate state, poised between the fragile, translucent beauty they spilled forth a couple of weeks ago, but not yet up to the full-on dark green they'll be sporting in June.)

Everything goes by so fast, you know? But it's okay; it'll be spring again before we know it. I guess I am just really fucking in love with the physical world these days. Life is swell.

Hi Rose --
thanks for the link. I know all about that 'loving the spring' thing, I've been mourning for our sunny warm days since it's decided to rain here constantly.

By the way, I'm not actually a runner (I walk) but I do knit. And I am a librarian (but don't work as one -- the economy in Portland sucks). Nice blog! Go out and run on the roads, dammit! It's better than treadmills most of the time.
