“Properly speaking, of course, there is no such thing as a return to nature, because there is no such thing as a departure from it. The phrase reminds one of the slightly intoxicated gentleman who gets up in his own dining room and declares firmly that he must be getting home.”
– The Chesterton Review, August, 1993
Spring definitely has sprung! The garden is greening up. Actually, it's somewhat greener and much more yellow than it should be. April tended to be a month where we needed to pick our priorities wisely - spend time with and help elderly and sick family or pull weeds. By the abundance of dandelions you can tell that family won out.
My guess is that May will bring more of the same. But, unlike Chesterton's drunk, we know exactly where home is and we indend to stay there as much as possible.
