This morning it was already 70 degrees by 8:00 am.
I took a jog through a gentle trail around a grand lake.
The surface of the lake was as still as a mirror. Even the ripples were like hand-drawn lines in a graphic novel.
I saw a doe stop right in front of me, and then proceed up the mountain, followed by two fawns. Me and my two kids, I thought.
I saw a bird stop right by me for the briefest fraction of a second, just enough time to see her beak filled with nesting straw. Time to build a home.
I saw wildflowers in bright pink and yellow scattered carelessly, abundantly.
And occasional breaks in the dense foliage that revealed EVERYTHING perfectly - sky, water, mountains, trees, bushes, grass, near and far.
And a little speck of a bird, a sparrow, I like to think, myself.
