Yesterday after church, the Rev. and the boy and I watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe again.
It seemed somehow appropriate to our current situation.
Stuck in what feels like an unending winter.
Encased in ice.
Under a flat gray sky.
We’re halfway through April, if you can believe it.
These poor quince buds have been waiting and waiting to bloom.
The trees have been waiting to sprout new growth.
Even the evergreens seem tired of it all.
We wait eagerly for the next season.
And comfort ourselves with what we hope is one last fire.
