  5. Four Seasons

    For the first time of this year today I did something I love doing – sitting, or more truthfully lounging, on my deck and reading, even catching a little catnap. It is really peaceful in the back and on a warm afternoon the only sound back there is that of the birds chirping and rustling through the trees, engaged in whatever social entanglements birds entangle themselves in.
