“Reading is that fruitful miracle of a communication in the midst of solitude.”
~ Marcel Proust
These kind of days are my favourites–sunshine, warm temperature, and a good measure of silence and solitude. I’ve resolved to take more down time this year so there’s a good chance I’ll spend some time on the deck with a book this afternoon.
It’s the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada, the unofficial kickoff to summer. It means little to me other than a reminder to avoid places that are likely to be crowded–which is pretty much everywhere–so my deck and my yard seem like good places to be.
