How are you doing? What are your days like? I am spending a lot of time watching the birds out my window. It's spring migration season here, and I hope to see birds here soon. Our pecan tree hasn't leafed out yet; it is only when leaves appear on our pecan tree that I know spring is really here.
"If we can't go to the parade,
let's have one here."

I hope I can read some adult books next week.
Migrations: A Novel by Charlotte McConagny is the story of a woman following the migration of the last of the Arctic terns. I'm not sure if I can read about this right now.
From the New York Times: Celeste Ng, Ann Patchett, Min Jin Lee and Others on the Books That Bring Them Comfort. Authors share books that give them comfort during difficult times. I found many favorites on their lists.
I pulled out a DVD I found some time ago, and we watched it last week. It is Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, and it's led to a little obsession with Gould himself.
I'd love to hear your recommendations for some good tv and movies.

Good Thing #1: My grandson, Wyatt, had a wonderful (albeit tiny) birthday party. My granddaughter, Annie, loved the standee I made. My daughter-in-law put it in Wyatt's room after the party. It was a happy day.
Good Thing #2: My backyard vegetable garden. Kale, enough for a salad with feta cheese and blueberries every night. Brussels sprouts, delicious roasted in the oven in olive oil. Cherry tomatoes just starting to make. Beans and carrots and peppers and basil and rosemary and cucumbers. Bountiful.
Good Thing #3: It Will Get Better by Hezekiah Walker. I want to know where this man buys his clothes.
