life, real life!

Easter flowers and post-lunch art

Every other day of the week, I can easily see the darkness. No, it's not difficult for me. I can let my eyes wander to the words that tear down, the respect that isn't there, the hurt that keeps on hurting, and the drugs that keep on peddling.

But today was a celebration... that life is real! And we've been celebrating since sundown Saturday, and what a celebration it's been. Not only have we had loads of laughter, grilled meat, and Snickers salad (yes, you read that right), but also children and color and accents (thanks to our Brazilian friend, Leo).

And other signs of life that will keep on teaching us what it means to live.

Here's a glimpse of the life that's growing around here...

field of lettuce

cucumber sprouts peeking through

peas that are eager to reach their trellis

scary beard and the children it scares (just kidding:)

Stay tuned for a detailed garden post and the life that's come to be in the form of peppers, tomatoes, kale, lettuce, cilantro, peas and more!

I'm pretty sure that the beard counts as life, real life too.

My carrots are sprouting like mad. It makes me sad that I have to thin them.
