It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Happy Easter Everyone
Part of Easter is child-like and fun...
Another part is the idea of a new life coming to redeem us...
And then..., there is the unbearable happiness of being here on this earth..., at this moment.
Freckles and I are saying a prayer for Madeline, in Alabama, and wishing you all a peaceful and happy Easter Sunday.
