Secretly, Joyfully, Clearly

I held my breath
as we do
sometimes to stop time
when something wonderful
has touched us

as with a match,
which is lit, and bright,
but does not hurt
in the common way,

but delightfully,

as if delight were the most serious thing you ever felt. -Mary Oliver (Snow Geese)

From the window I could see that the snow was already beginning to melt. We ate our sandwiches quickly, fresh mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and rich balsamic reduction - a lunch that Satch exuberantly calls, "DELISH-IST & GORJ-IST". We carefully donned our layers, like peeling in reverse. It was a mile trek to get out to the vista, pulling Satch in the sled behind me for most of the way, but it was well worth it.

Have a good weekend! See you Monday.

That's the Satchist thing I've ever heard!

p.s. My word verification for posting this comment is "shess," which sounds about right.

Whenever I read your blog, it makes me wish that I had a mom who stayed home to take care of me. Your mozzarella lunch does sound delish, plus you come up with so many fun things to do. =)
