Happy Birthday SBW......

It is important to be at peace on the day of one's birth.
So..... for Scott's 42nd birthday, we ventured to Wilbur Hot Springs in Williams, CA.

Welcome to BLISS land.

We soaked.
We made yummy food.
And we woke up to the birdies talking and the sun shining.
We hiked and saw the most beautiful wildflowers popping everywhere.
And we celebrated the magnificent Scott B Ward.

Why I Wake Early by Mary Oliver

Hello, Sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of tulips
and the nodding morning glories.
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crotchety - 

best preacher that ever was,
dead star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light-
good morning, good morning, good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.
