you said Is, treasures and looking forward

- e.e. cummings. A poet with a joyful perspective on life.

- Sitting in a gracious woman's living room and admiring her collection of china figurines, reminding me of things my grandmother treasured.

- A young lady at Chick-fil-A having great patience with someone who doesn't usually order fast food, saying, "It's Wednesday - you have two days to go before the weekend." Looking forward to that.

Cathy -

I liked it, too, and snapped a photo of it when I saw it in a garden shop so I could mull over the meaning. What a surprise to find that it is from an e.e. cummings poem.

Mama Zen -

This is turning out to be such a busy week that it will be the weekend before I know it. :)

Wow, sounds like the rain is busy being, not trying to be?
