3.22.20 … ““Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. … live in the question.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2020 Lenten Labyrinth Walks (24/40), 2020 Lenten Lists, Myers Park Baptist Church- Charlotte NC, kith/kin:

I woke up very early, and I thought to myself, I feel lonely. I’m rarely lonely, but today is my son Edward’s birthday, his 28th. He is in Denver and is pretty much self isolating. He was supposed to be here, but decided it was really not a good idea to fly. So instead, he’s by himself. And I’m not with him. I like to be with my family for birthdays and holidays. So yes, I feel lonely. I hope he is not lonely.

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. … live in the question.”

Some of the best things about spring in the southeast are the glorious colors, and they come early. I was driving through Foxcroft this morning and the pinks and whites were just gorgeous today.

I decided that I would get up early and go walk before total closings prevent my walks. I don’t think I can argue that they are essential.

I arrived at Myers Park Baptist and a gust of wind nearly yank the door out of my hand. It was 52°, but it felt like it’s about 40° with the wind. This will be a quick walk.

It was very gray. I did hear multiple bird calls. I’m pretty sure one was a robin and another an owl. The rosemary here was beginning to bloom, much l later than that down in Gastonia last week.

When I got in my car this morning it was covered in pollen, and although though it was clear that someone had recently been blowing, the yellow pollen from the area was not be easily removed…

And I liked this Donna Ashworth poem …

And today is the 28th birthday of my son Edward. He is kind, so no need for him to be kinder than before…
