We felt it prudent to hang little signs on our light-switches first thing in the morning - to remind us not to switch them on.
And we checked on the garden.
And planted seeds.
We played in the sandbox
and lectured Grammy on The Way of prehistory.
We climbed and swung
and played computer games.
We called ducks and geese while awaiting friends
and thought about life.
We tested our strength with Daring Fetes
saw the very first wildflowers of the season
and accepted what life had to offer.
We ran with the wild things
and shared imaginings while lying on the earth.We ran more
and climbed more
and swung more
and loved even more.
Eventually we arrived back home
it grew dark
and we read stories by candlelight and used muted, whispering tones.
A soft ending to a gentle kind of day.
