What Is Beauty? Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder! Better than Calgon!

Ciao bella,

As I sit, here on Brattle Street in Harvard Square, I almost thought it would be forever before I would enjoy a spring breeze! The birds are playfully pecking at each other and singing their welcoming songs of spring. The crocuses are busting up out of their mulched ground. Peeking through their green sprouts are shades of white, purple and yellow. They will smell so delightful.

People dining upstairs and outside at The Algiers Restaurant next door, casually discussing the problems of the world and their upcoming courses. Next door, where I'm enjoying a lovely bench in front of The Cambridge Center for Adult Education, I see my classmates and Cabanaland friends strolling from lunch. It seems I hadn't seen them for months, and I haven't! All had negative descriptions of the past season we just survived --enough about that! This lovely spring day is all that matters now -- the beauty of it all.

Looking forward to baseball season, lazy sunshine days in Cabanaland, and outdoor dining there!

The sand and sea touch our feet and we will come alive. We shall never again take for granted these beautiful days! Or at least not for a very long time!

So step out and actually feel the spring breezes caress your body and soul! It's a beautiful thing!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
