"I was in my yard and thought that the tree was a living being. We take trees for granted. We don't believe they are as much alive as we are."—Ziggy Marley
I teach English as a Second Language at a local community college on Monday and Wednesday evenings in the summer. I had a lot to do this morning, but now I'm sitting outside in the front yard with my husband enjoying the cool breeze in the shade on a hot day!
The crows are cawing and the wind is rustling through the trees in the front yard. Every now and then a white butterfly flutters into the yard and lands on one of the daisies that we have in a circle garden in the front.
My husband has a temple bell from Korea hanging from our fence and when the wind blows stronger it starts to ring. We also have a wind chime by the front door that is playing a melody softly in the background.
Perfect, gentle, quiet afternoon before class.
Do you have a yard? Do you like to sit in it?
