killing me softly, be the light, and tea time

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. A woman sings softly (and, I think, unconsciously) on the other side of the Metro platform as she waits for her train. Because of the acoustics of the station, her melodic tones reach me, too.

2. Sarah, Rudi, and I caught opening night of A Wrinkle in Time tonight. I went into it too excited and the screenplay writer/director opted not to include the scene from the book I love best, one essential to my personal understanding of life, so I can say assuredly it’s not perfect. But it was very good, with lush scenery that makes me curious about the 3D version (and green lipstick), a solid reenvisioning of the story, and excellent performances from its actors, particularly Storm Reid, who plays Meg.

3. My yearly supply of tea leaves arrived Monday, much to the bemusement of my office mailroom supervisor, who inquired about the contents when I cheered with glee as he delivered the box to me. Sure, I suppose most people don’t order 11 pounds of tea at once, but most people don’t drink as much tea as we do. I’m really excited to refill all my canisters this weekend, some of which have been empty a long time. (I think my supplier has been out of Gurance when I’ve tried to order it for the past two years!)

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?

I love that you heard someone singing on the platform. You are appreciating your small life wonders and I think that is so important. I Beautiful in my world:
I was asked to be an event photographer at the upcoming March fundraiser Tack Sale and Seminar at the barn. Im honored.
We change the clocks this weekend and that means longer sunlight. I think I need it.
