one thousand gifts, norway, excerpt, week five

Waking in the middle of the night to full moonlight streaming across my bed
Mangos and cilantro and lime
The final day of winter term
An insistent chickadee
Snowdrops from the forest
The six year old teaching herself the first phrase of Perpetual Motion by ear
One week until March
Crisp, clean sheets
GK Chesterton
The little girl with kitty facepaint and a tulle skirt, shoveling candy into a brown paper bag from the self-serve bins at the grocery store
A wrought-iron sunrise on someone's garden gate
Watching a man bicycle slowly along the waterfront
Milky rooibos tea (coconut!)
Free ticket to Handel's Messiah, performed by the choir of King's College, Cambridge (via youtube)
Nutella and almonds on a rice cake
An exhausting three hour traipse through the forest
Deep carpets of moss and fairy three-leaf clover
The smell of spring
Mist in the pines (an enchanted forest!)
Psa. 92:4 "I will triumph in the works of Thy hands"
