Birds are chirping, the snow is fading and my windows are open. This morning I looked down on a roof that had until this week, held at least a foot of snow since December. Now that the snow's gone, earthly belongings appear that weren't there last fall.
So far, I spy 3 cordless telephones, a pair of men's hiking boots, an umbrella, half a dozen CDs, a large scallop shell, a full plastic grocery bag, some long painted sticks, a potted plant and various small household items. I assume these all flew out of windows over the winter. And that humans, my neighbors, threw them out the windows over the winter.
As hard and long as this winter has been, I didn't throw anything out the window. Maybe I'm missing something.
