I’ve been Boston camera happy lately and I hope you don’t mind. Just yesterday I decided to head into the city after work to enjoy the sun and shoot some signs of the changing seasons. It was just one of those afternoons where you feel like you’ve got the whole world in front of you, and you’re looking straight at it and soaking it in for all it’s worth. As I walked along the Charles, I noticed a quote in a plaque right near one of the benches by the edge of the river. It said simply, “Life is like a bowl of cherries.” And I loved finding this because it’s true, life has it’s sweet days and life has it’s days with pits. I’m glad to report that yesterday was of the sweeter variety.
And, well, friends, if my memory serves me correctly, summer seemed to have come last week, right with the entrance of spring. And then this week, it seems to have left us, just as quickly as it came. But I know it only left for a little while. It’s coming with the budding flowers and blue skies. It’s coming in the longer days and gorgeous sunsets. It’s coming with busy weekends and spring cleaning– in the crisp cool mornings, in the busy afternoons, and in the anticipation and excitement of only 10 more weeks of school!
Spring is here and summer is coming.
