Noticing

Greetings, HaQ friends. This is a noticing week. It’s spring and I’m in an eyes-open mood. So I’m noticing things. (And, yes, I did notice that it is not Sunday and I’m late! About time I sat down and got the keyboard out of park, eh?)

What I’m noticing is:

A handful of elm seeds, coins tossed for me to find.

Yes – I’m not so talkative (write-a-tive?) this week. There’s something about spring that calls me to bear witness. It is sweet to just open my eyes and breathe.

Spring is here. When I take the time to notice, that is blessing enough.


Update on my book project: It’s coming along! I have taken it out for a spin, reading short pieces at our local writer’s open mic a couple times. My funny little terrier is the book’s cover model and spokes-dog. You can find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SpringLoadedTerrier/ . There’s more fun stuff coming!

This is my 50th post on Here’s a Quarter – I am so grateful to share it with you. Stay tuned for more on the Here’s a Quarter blog next week! As always, your thoughts and comments are always welcome – they are moderated (I know – adulting again), so they may take a little while to appear, but I read them all and appreciate that you were here. Thank you!
