Thursday, as usual, was a full and hectic day. Between car inspections, food preparation, kid transportation, grocery shopping, and more, my son and I took a walk around a large reservoir. The air is still nippy, but it is warming again from the freezing weather of the last few days. Wavelets lapped the shore, and all my son said repeatedly was, “Water.” As I moved to go on, he said, “No, no, no, water.” So we stayed and watched the sunlight sparkle and listened to the birds singing. In the midst of all the crazy, a slice of nature brings calm.
