Treasures 2007_07

Medicine, law, business, engineering.
These are noble pursuits. And necessary to sustain life.
But poetry, beauty, romance, love.
These are what we stay alive for.

- Tom Schulman

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Geese! I saw a full V going by on Monday; only two today but close enough to see their black heads and white collars.

  • So many flowering trees blooming - white, pink, pale pink, even a few yellow. The ornamental plum in our back yard is still covered in blossoms, as if they were tissue blossoms pasted on.

  • It's even begun to smell like spring.

  • Yellow pollen all over our car means spring (and I'm so glad neither of us has seasonal allergies!)

  • Rumors that Apple will have a sub-notebook computer this spring/summer. I've soooooo been waiting for this.

  • Another Monday holiday. I didn't even expect this one. I found out on Thursday!

  • Squirrel flopped on my arm. I'm typing with one hand but that's just fine.
