Falling Into Spring
This weekend had that perfect balance of scheduled activity and open space to fill slowly and contentedly. There were birthday dinners to attend, a milonga to DJ, rehearsals and a performance. And then there were long, lazy lunches of wings, wedges, baseball, and good conversation and opportunities to go stomping around in the woods. It was lovely.
It's an interesting time of year right now. Purportedly Spring, yet no real signs of Life yet. Instead of moss and leafy greenness, the woods have melted away the snow to show off all of the dead leaves from months ago, as crunchy and dried up as the day they fell to the ground. With my wool skirt, cashmere sweater, and knee socks, I felt right at home in this Autumn atmosphere. Baring my knees however did feel like a BIG step toward Spring and Warm. Thankfully we took these pictures when we did, because about an hour later the rains that would last the rest of the weekend began and my bare knees felt a little out of place again. But the idea of new Life following the rain is an exciting one.
Occasionally my friend will taunt me while taking my photos. I, of course, always handle this with class and dignity, because I am a Lady.
