Reflection, Favorite, and Perfect

One of the nicest things about a four-day weekend is losing track of what day of the week it is, even briefly. And I did just that as I was thinking about what to write here on the blog today. It took me a moment to remember it is Saturday, and therefore I already have a topic – three beautiful things from the past week.

1. Walking to the train on Wednesday on my way home from the office, the sun hit a building across the street just right, showing off its reflective front in a way I’d never noticed before.

2. I didn’t sleep in much later than usual on my days off, but rather than jumping into the shower like I would on a work day, I sat on my porch, drank coffee, and re-read a favorite book from my childhood, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

3. At one point during last night’s Springsteen concert, I closed my eyes and instead of watching, just felt the music. As the drums pounded in my chest and the guitars buzzed in my ears, I knew I was in a perfect moment.

What’s been beautiful in your life this week?

    1. Love your picture! 🙂
    2. One of my favorite things about teaching is sharing ‘old favorite’ books with my class. Mrs. Basil is one I read every other year or so…along with The Twenty-One Balloons…ever read that one? I love youth books…
