I took a deep breath;
you know
that kind that fills your lungs and belly and then radiates crystal clear oxygen out to your extremities making your fingers and toes tingle with delight.

With eyes closed and all other senses open, I claimed the joy of perfect weather;
a simple, much needed gift today.

Write a story in exactly 55 words.

The G-Man "Mr. Know-It-All" is our intrepid host. 
Visit him and give him a tickle.

Merry Meet and Blessed Be

    "Wonderful! Brilliant! Thanks, Nessa!" left an identical comment (except for the "Nessa" part) on one of my blogs.

    No great harm, but definitely a spammer

  9. *smile* Makes me feel like taking a deep breath and spreading my arms.
