My creative tank is pointing to "E" tonight. I'm off tomorrow and I plan to meditate, do yoga, and take a long walk to see if the wild honeysuckle is blooming yet.

This picture is from my walk yesterday. It's a buckeye bush in full bloom. I'll leave you with a quote from one of my favorite authors, Anne Lamott.

I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.
~ Anne Lamott


  1. Great picture and quote. When it is lovely out, it is nice to go for a long walk

    Lovely quote, Rick--listen!!

  4. You know we Ohioans are very partial to Buckeyes and are known as the Buckeye State. Hope you have a wonderful Good Friday.

  5. Beautiful photo. I don't think they grow around here because I've never seen one in bloom.

    Have a great Easter weekend and get plenty of restorative rest.

  6. This is beautiful. And a good reminder for all of us to slow down.

  7. Ahhhh the SWEET smell of honey suckles! since chlidhood, my favorite scent!

  8. Anne Lamott has such a way with words. "look up at the hectic trees"--not sure what this truly means.
    Wonderful photo.

  9. The poem has good advice. That is the way to enjoy spring.
