Ah, the sweet fragrance of lilacs. My mind cycles

through ideas to incorporate in today’s entry.

what garden treasures to cut and savor in our

repast.  A little bit of this.  Some of that.

The cardinals offer song as I lunch on the

front porch. My mind cycles through ideas.

of experiencing life’s simple pleasures.

Driven and inspired.  In the moment.

Inspiration strikes when least expected.
