On A Wednesday

"Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all."

-Emily Dickenson

It was an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday. After my appointment with Sarah, I took a drive in the hills to enjoy the view. It was extremely clear, so looking across the bay into San Francisco, was an enjoyable experience. No smog. No overcast skies, and while the sun was really bright, the air up here was still and had just enough of a chill to be really comfortable. I should have grabbed a burger, and a lemonade downtown, and brought it up here on my drive. Car picnics are fun. Alan and I have some gardening chores on the "to do" list for the next couple days, but maybe next week I will do some more photography in the hills near home. Yesterday was a perfect June day, one of those days when hope is everywhere, and I am sure there will be more days like this to come. :)

It's A Beautiful Morning
By The Rascals

It's a beautiful morning ahh
I think I'll go outside for a while
And just smile
Just take in some clean fresh air
Ain't no sense in stayin' inside
If the weathers fine and you got the time
It's your chance to wake up and plan another day
Brand new day
Either way

It's a beautiful morning
Each bird keeps singin' his own song
So long
I've got to be on my way now
Ain't no fun just hangin' around
I've got to cover ground couldn't keep me down
It just ain't no good if the sun shines
When you're still inside
Shouldn't hide still inside, shouldn't hid
Ahhh oh shouldn't hide ah ah ah oh

There will be children with robins and flowers
Sunshine caresses each new breaking hour
Seems to me that the people keep seeing
More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way
It's okay Wednesday, Thursday it's ok
Ahhh Monday, Wednesday, Friday weekday ah ah ah ohhh
