Perfect weather does wonders for one’s attitude April 29, 2007Posted by Matsu in Family, Random.
Today in Kentucky the weather could not have been more ideal. Sunny, but not hot. Cool, but not cold. Finally, a spring day that feels like spring.
For some reason, I love spring and fall weather best. Those seasons that buffer us from the heat of summer and the cold of winter provide a boost to my psyche.
One way in which I enjoyed the weather was watching my son play baseball. It was at the end of the day and the game lasted for about two and a half hours, so the shadows were growing long and then I watched the sun set. It reminded me of life in Green Town, Illinois. (Note reference to Ray Bradbury’s fictional town in his book Dandelion Wine.) It was wonderful.
My son played well, but his team lost by two runs. Oddly enough, the kids didn’t seem to mind and they were not as disappointed as the coach. They had a good time. As did their parents.
Summer is around the corner, so it must be time to purchase a new pair of tennis shoes.
