1. I have a daily appointment to feed B.'s bees and it has been my counterweight for an exceptionally busy week. I walk into her quiet garden and I hear the humming of the hives. All of the business swirling in my mind stops while I watch the bees come and go, come and go. I take a seat and just keep watching for a while.
2. I could turn the sprinkler off in order to adjust it but, no. I'd rather dart into the spray, turn the knob and dart back out again.
3. My non-cooking daughter calls me for a chocolate cake recipe to bake from scratch for her husband's birthday. I picture her hands holding the electric mixer.
