Organic strawberries are such a treat in the morning. They have a lesson to teach me as well. They are freshest right now. I can't save them for a later day when I'm out of fruit. I can't have their peak of ripeness any other day.
So are the moments of my life. I can't save that thrill of hearing the birds, as I get up, for later this winter. Their call is for now and now is when I must stop to listen.
Some years I miss April because I have so many lessons to teach and people to call. This year I'm taking time to see April, smell April, and feel the freshness of today.
