Spring break officially started at 2:15 this afternoon--and unlike the last two years of teaching, I actually got the hell out of there at...oh, about 2:20. Portland cooperated nicely by providing the most glorious springy day we've seen so far, all bright and blue and flower-scented. I took off my shoes and socks, spread my toes in the muddy grass, and spent over three hours by the river in the sunshine, reading, people-watching, brimming over with happiness.
I love spring! This is when my exuberance overflows, every little thing makes me smile, and everything seems possible. Portland, life, nature, family, friends--I love you all!
