We're in California (again). I wore shorts today, the warm air washing my bare legs like bathwater. My suitcase is full of books and Internet access is spotty. The cherry trees behind the cabin are in blossom and vibrating with honeybees and I saw a hummingbird as fat as a sparrow this morning. I slapped sunscreen onto three sets of lean little legs and the kids wheeled around on their scooters in the lane for hours. We keep setting out bowls of giant strawberries.
I feel like I have been bounced out of a rut I didn't even know I was in.
