Technically, Monday was my first spring run of this year, but today was the first time it really felt springlike. Sunny! Warm (enough)! Streets lined with fragrant flowering cherry trees! The cherry tree picture is just so-so. Something about the cars parked on the street detracts from the composition of the photo. I actually think the trees have more impact when you are driving through than walking or running.
But now my task is smoothly done, I can fly, or I can run Quickly to the green earth’s end, . . . And from thence can soar as soon To the corners of the moon. Mortals that would follow me, Love virtue, she alone is free. John Milton
Avid antique shopper and garden lover, runner, walker, skier, and yoga & pilates devotee. Frequent traveller to England. Voracious reader of literary fiction, travel memoirs, self-help books, mysteries, garden & decorating books, and a wide variety of magazines (Runner's World, Oprah, Prevention, More, Glamour, as well as stacks of gossip mags while at the Y). I also have a weakness for contemporary Brit-lit (Bridget Jones and sistren) and sweeping English sagas (e.g. Rosamunde Pilcher novels). English major in my former life. I love sweet peas, David Austin English roses, old houses, antique silver, china and glassware, the Cotswolds, chocolate, scones with jam & clotted cream, and Jane Austen novels. When I grow up (or in my next life) I would like to own a tea room and antiques shop, but for now I just visit as many as I can.
