Fresh

Spring is fresh and green here. Farmer’s markets abound, with one somewhere around town most every day of the week. One of the most colorful is the Saturday market downtown, and the first sign we saw approaching it yesterday was the people carrying fresh local flowers as they headed home on the street.

Among the many carefully adorned stalls, the people are colorful too. This woman with young child and a box of fresh organic local strawberries kindly paused for my camera.

To me this pic could be Europe, and it also has fresh flavors of times long past. Or an advertisement for wholesome food to nourish your family. A few minutes later nearing home we stopped to admire the crisp mountain view and a swallow dancing between insect snacks in the clear Spring air.

Strolling amid the bright smell of pepper trees, I contemplated moments and memories. Every season overflows with moments, each so precious yet most not noticed. Some become memories, and some are chosen by an unknown formula to become pix that can represent an essence of our memories or maybe trigger an impulse in us to take yet another fresh look around.
