"Love is a great beautifier."
Louisa May Alcott
Yesterday I spent a few hours by myself and took a tour of the house
where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women.
Literally saw the desk where she sat, pen in hand, putting words on the page.
There were so many things I loved about these few hours.
I enjoyed the time by myself doing something just cause I wanted to.
I love that I drove by this rich slice of history on the way to meet a friend for coffee.
I loved the chilly, rainy afternoon
and imagined there were many such days through history just like this one in Orchard House's front yard.
I loved listening to a tour guide who very obviuosly loved what she was doing.
I loved learning.
I loved the rain drops on the branches
and the beginnings of new life.
I guess what the Beatles sang is true...
All I needed for a lovely Saturday afternoon...
