Evening Light

I whine a great deal about the time change in the spring...losing an hour of sleep is always an issue with me but I do enjoy the fact that I don't have to drive home in the dark. And when I get home, there is still enough evening light to walk around the yard and look at all the flowers, shrubs, and fruit trees. Today as I did my inspections I noticed that the pear and the apple trees are blooming. The grape vines are only a day or two from blossom.
I get an email each day from the Daily OM and quite often they are profound. The one for yesterday talks about a simple leaf. If you look at a leaf closely enough it can be as beautiful as a work of art. The remarkable thing is that it's connected to a stem and the stem is connected to a branch and the branch to the trunk and the trunk to the gound. The leaves inhale in what humans exhale. Leaves exhale what humans perfect is that? Everything is connected on some level. There is a cosmic dance that goes on around us every day and it's very hard to tell where one eco system begins and the other ends.
As I walk around my little eco system in the fading evening light I feel a connection and I feel blessed to be right here, right now.
