Thirteen things on my important list today:
1 - He told me his favorite moments yesterday on the mesa were watching the wind flow through the grass. No wonder I am in love.
2 - Washing my hair.
3 - Yesterday an early morning black bear on the mountain road.
4 - The wilderness.
5 - Kids race at the Tour de Gila today: All the little kids had finished the race, including two very late stragglers, when a tiny girl in tears belatedly came struggling along the second leg of the race, a male adult more or less pushing her along, but she was still pedaling. I don't know what had happened, but the crowd of people cheered and rang bells and she finished the race. And I have hope for the human race--we do want each other to succeed. We are awesome!
6 - There has been a riot of roses for over two weeks now.
7 - The sudden scent of sap in sunlight.
8 - The tapestry of people making things possible for one another, for example building mountain roads. And cars.
9 - A blessing: May your path be lined with daisies.
10 - Thinking about my mother.
11 - Goodbye to most of Orion this week (except for the northeast shoulder, Bellatrix).
12 - Getting ready to go dancing.
13 - Be important today.
