Just Around the Corner
Tonight's soundtrack: Herbie Hancock, Maiden Voyage, Munich, 1989
Just a short snippet tonight.
Today was a full day. I don't seem to have any side effects yet except tiredness and a slight sore throat, but that might be from the salsa I had with lunch. Sometimes that happens to me, a slight swelling in the throat.
This weekend we met up with some friends for a gathering around a fire pit. It was the first time we've hung out with anyone since last year and the last warm days of late fall. I think we were nervous, but also excited, and it was wonderful. Our host brought out a guitar and we spent the last bit of the evening taking turns sharing songs. One could almost imagine that it hadn't been a year since we last sat around together.
We also picked up four new chicks from the Farm on a Rock in Colrain. They had a bunch of guniea hens wandering around the yard. They seemed so marvelous looking strolling happily along with a very affectionate cat. Our new chicks are teenagers and we let them stay outside all day today in a separate enclosure from the two older hens. They played with the knotweed I put in the pen, and the big hens circled around curious.
So it has been a busy and event filled few days here, and today work ran long and then Franklin needed a walk, so I'm calling it a night.
But, it is nice to feel optimistic about possibility, just around the corner.
Take care and be well,
