A warm wind blew some perfect summer days into Wisconsin last week and we sent a kite up to say thank you. This is what we wrote on its wings (with our imaginary pen):
Thank you for the open widows and the sweet, fresh air;
for giving our tired boots and mismatched mittens a break;
for the packed playgrounds and busy park swings;
for making the food taste so much better because we got to eat it outside;
for melting all that dirty snow;
for coaxing those crocuses out of the ground;
for the vitamin D;
for the easy peasy lemon squeezy shorts and T-shirt mornings:
for the honest sweat;
for the lonely tablets that spent days on the counter, unclaimed and unused;
for those first few buds on the trees;
for the optimism;
for the joy.
We loved having you and can’t wait to see you again.

Seals and Crofts — very nice. Cheers!
