Forty-seven degrees. Across the street, the big bare tree behind the neighbor’s house is full of starlings, so many it sounds like spring.
Earlier, from the front window, I saw a squirrel jump from the edge of the roof into the cedar. Such a leap would not have been possible a year ago — the tree has grown that much.
In that spirit, I am making a small leap myself. . . .
Now, will you just look at that — I landed with both feet on the ground!
