June 29: Simplest Things in Life, Judith Minty, "Section 23 from Spring"

Sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best.  I know that is a cliche, but it's true.


I was sitting at my dining room table, writing a blog post this afternoon.  I heard music outside my door.  I went to the window and saw the ice cream truck parked on the corner of my street.  What did I do?  Like a little kid, I went flying through the house, searching for dollar bills.  I found three.  I ran across the street, right in front of an approaching car, and bought myself an M&M ice cream cookie sandwich.  It was heaven.

Simple things bring light to your life.

Saint Marty is just a kid at heart.  His wife would have looked at me this afternoon and said, "What, are you five years old?"

As darkness settles,
only trillium blossoms
and the bark of birch trees
hold the light.
