Simple Magic


It stormed last night, complete with thunder and strobe-like lightening. I got up to pull my little seedlings under cover just in case the rain got hard. I must say, it was quite an electrifying show. The morning greeted me cool, calm and cloudy, and the day progressed with a mix of sun and cloud and barely a hint of humidity. It was a delight compared with the August-in-May day we had yesterday, and it made for a simply perfect garden day.

Dinner was simple. Fresh trout with rice mixed with garden herbs and a salad of store-bought romaine mixed with dandelion greens and other assorted garden goodies.
Dinner was followed by by a simple night out with a friend. Our original intention was to stand in loving prayer to quietly counter objectors that were expected to be protesting at a local high school performance of The Laramie Project. The simple intention worked on its own. The protesters didn't show, and we were able to attend a moving performance of light that shines in deep, deep darkness.

All in all, it made for a simply loving day. Peace.

"The Laramie Project" is an amazing play! Holly and I saw it at the Brookfield Theater for the Arts recently, and were simply blown-away by it. The same thing happened there in regards to the protests.

I'm so glad you posted this and drew my attention to the Laramie Project. If and when it comes to my town, Roanoke, I will try to see it.

I'm glad there were no protestors! It's an amazing play and should be seen by everyone, I think. Some stories really need to be told, and this is one of them.

It was a great performance and seemed to express an added poignancy coming from high school students.
