Spring Nights

Today was marked by beautiful, warm, sunny, Spring weather; filled with the sound of birds chirping and scent of budding blossoms.  Sadly, I was stuck indoors working and bored out of my ever-loving mind.

By the time I left work it was dark.  To make up for what I missed the following is a list of beauty that comes out on warm Spring nights:

  • The scent of Night Blooming Jasmine and Orange Blossoms washing over sidewalks and through open car windows;
  • Porch lights waiting to welcome home their owners;
  • Watching homes come to life as their denizens return and fill their rooms and halls with the scents and sounds of community;
  • Laughter wafting from open windows as friends and family sit around dinner tables catching up on one another’s days and lives;
  • The mouthwatering scent of outdoor grilling and bbq;
  • The continued hope that one day I will see a firefly (though not in CA) and catch one in my hands for a moment before letting it flit away into the darkness…
