We should always make the most of our Holidays. Friday was a statutory holiday (across Canada) and it seemed like everybody was outside walking around the block, face up to the sun, breathing in the air. I was exploring the East Don Parklands with my brother and my husband for company. We planted a letterbox and watched birds. A male cardinal sang from a perch on a black wire while his mate sipped from a puddle below. A girl on a swing made the swing set screech, but my brother said it sounded like music--and indeed, when I really listened, I realized it had a pleasant pitch and timbre, and cast a fluting melody across the day. Enjoy your moments as they come.

PS. What are your spring holiday traditions?
