It’s Spring Break around here, but you’d be hard pressed to guess that, what with the a) stacks of student portfolios in my dining room; b) looming writing deadlines; and c) the complete lack of airline tickets to some tropical locale.
But there is one sight that gives me pure joy and that is my bare ice-free driveway sitting smack in the middle of the mid-winter sunbeam. Ahhh–who would have guessed that absence combined with blacktop could make me so content? NO shoveling! Love it.
