Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

I told you so.
Did I not tell you what the really motives were for my sister's visit?
Was it the wonderful new restaurant on Main Street with the great homemade salsa and chips? The Antique stores? The laughing over how we seem to make shorter trips downtown and how the menus have "smaller" writing? How life is going by so fast and every morning wakes us with a new ache in our bodies?..a new hitch in our hips?
Was it the beautiful walk Sunday morning in the warm sunshine and a cat named Annibel, who followed us up to Maggie's resting place? The green, grass covered hills and the loveliness of a California Spring?
Probably, all of this. She left with a bigger smile on her face and a promise to come back soon...
...but mostly ,that first photo says it all.
