Waiting for Spring

Photos by Patricia

Some peripheral Christmas décor has been packed away. But the tree and bay window lighting with decorations stays until inauguration. Light is needed, light and gaiety amidst the suffering.

A man in the ICU barely able to breath said, “I didn’t wear a mask. I should have. I thought it was about politics, that it would all go away.”

Tears fall for that man, and others like him.  

Changing the desktop to filter through my photos of flowers instead of Christmas scenes Samuel says, “Looking at flowers is just what we need.”

“I was thinking the same things,” I said as we rocked by the fire, seemingly unable to get started with the day because the fire is so warm and inviting on yet another grey, cold day.

Spring. Waiting for spring…
