The Hesitation Waltz
Today is one of those typically Spring-like days of gorgeous, sparkling hesitancy! The weather is doing the Hesitation Waltz. Right now the sun is shining in all its golden glory, the sky is blue, the clouds are white, it looks gorgeous and warm, but there is also the added sparkle and diamantine brilliance of all the droplets of water clinging to leaves, dancing on the edges of branches, flashing on windshields, because it just this minute stopped raining, and raining hard. Ooops, and there it goes again, sun disappeared behind a cloud, warmth gone, a cold grey sickliness overtaking the warmth and golden strength of just a moment ago. And I know it will happen again and again -- has all my life -- it's Springtime in Oregon!
