Gorgeous Memorial Day weekend in Chicago with temperatures in the high '80s. My mom stopped by and I looked out onto the backyard and she was sleeping on a blanket. I had to join her. What a simple treat. Crazy thing came to my mind. When reporters asked Amanda Knox what she was looking forward to after spending years in an Italian prison, she said, "A roll in the fresh grass." That's what I did. Just rolled and felt the warm blades. Grateful for the simple splendor.
