Treasures 2005_11

Do not trust your memory; it is a net full of holes; the most beautiful prizes slip through it.
-- Georges Duhamel

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.

  • An exuberant crop of toadstools after the last rain

  • A splendiferous day! Warm, sunny, a touch of light breeze. It's much too pretty to be a Friday and I have to work!

  • A new quote collection site!

  • A woman with a bubble wand making huge soap bubbles in the park with her kids

  • A man driving past with his dog as his copilot

  • Our ornamental plum tree, about which I was greatly concerned, is leafing out! It was coated in lichens and something like spanish moss and I had feared for its survival but it did not succumb. (I've been removing as much of the lichen and moss as I can to help it out).

  • The first lilacs of the season. Mmmmmmmm.

  • One of my better dreams (the kind with a plot).

  • Spring perfume (something is in bloom!)

  • "Chatting" with Rich while he's at a conference. We've never done that before; it's fun to keep in touch and he can tell me about the talks.
