are barely beginning to bloom. I saw the first hint of color yesterday, brighter today. They come on fast here as spring turns to summer and last at least into July. The first summer I spent in Austin the courtyard below my window was brilliant with crepe myrtles, burgandy and pink. They are summer's flower for me still.
Calm at the office today - still torn apart of course, but no problems, no new chaos, good conversations with friends.
I heard someone call my grandchildren's generation "natives" regarding electronic technology, and it's true. It amazes me to see KK sitting on her bed whipping out Power Point slides for a presentation on jazz dance, so much access to pictures and information so fast on the web, and though she is not particularly tech savy for her age, she gets it done and with a naturalness that eludes me still.
