I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

La primavera ha venido

Nadie sabe cómo ha sido...

"Spring has come/No one knows how."

Or so says Antonio Machado.

I actually went outside today. Sometimes I forget that I am allowed to leave the office during the day, that there is an old custom called "the lunch hour" and that although seldom observed, it is still technically legal.

Of course, I wasn't the only one who decided that a beautiful spring day was perfect for lunch in the park. There was a great egret across the pond from me, staring fixedly into the water, waiting for his meal to swim by.

Of course, as soon as I sat down to eat my own lunch, the egret caught a fish. By the time I was able to focus again, he'd scurried back into the underbrush to eat in privacy.
