Three cute Cooper guys spend Easter afternoon building with Legos. Quietly, seriously, calmly, in the signature Cooper way, they proceed, bonding in the deep, wordless way of the Irish male. Fascinating. And adorable.

We’ve been enjoying days upon days of harmony. Having my parents close, knowing that I’m okay for now, watching the layers of a barely-winter peel back to reveal spring.

My friend Lori is teaching me to play piano. I sit at the window and watch the hawks circle our court while I run scales. I don the pretty new apron my mom bought me and pick sweet peas in the garden. I read and rest and play with Little J and his friends.

That’s all. Just life. As simple and beautiful as it can be when the alarms are turned off.

I hope you’re enjoying all the gifts of what’s easy and harmonious.
