Anything by Byrd Baylor I love. Her books are poetic and a reverence for nature. This one talks about celebrating Holidays, however not the normal ones. It's about celebrating the wonder of nature.
I thought of this book yesterday. I decided to celebrate Spring. I know it wasn't the official first day of Spring, but it was for me. I finally took down the Winter decorations and put up the Spring ones.
And because it was such a beautiful day, I decided to go for a bike ride on the Provo Trail. It was amazing! It was the first this year I went bike riding without wearing gloves.
As I was riding back I looked down at my pants, and there was a fly on them. I kept looking down while my legs were a'pumping and the fly was still there! It was enjoying the bike ride too. It finally flew away when I stopped.
So as I riding my bike with the fly, I decided for me it was the 1st day of Spring and we had a great time celebrating it.
