Surprises


Life sometimes graces you with lovely surprises, the unexpected sunrise, flowers in unusual places, the rarely seen bobcat climbing the canyon wall.  Today, tired, bag full of papers to grade, I entered my house, smelling a puzzling sweetness.  The stage manger of Les Miserable lived with me two weeks.  She left a bottle of red wine, a heartfelt note, and a bouquet, snowy lilies, golden roses, blue bells.  Lillie scent pervades the room.  I walk in beauty.  IMG_1445
