It's a Dangerous Business

"It's a dangerous business, Frodo--stepping out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you'll be swept off to."~ Bilbo, Fellowship of the Ring

A wise quote for all of us, something I think of when I do step outside. I'll be looking at the sky, looking at my garden (which I am extremely proud of this year, although wretched at present because the coldsnap totally destroyed my pacific beauties...only things surviving are the pansy sprouts!)--looking down the road, considering a walk. (Walking is very beneficial exercise, as Lizzy Bennet reminds me all the time). Then I'll look up and down the road, and then...I'll hear the kettle whistle.

"Oh! I think I'll go have a cup of coffee."

But the day is full of adventures. Daily life can be really...beautiful.
