"I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy.
I woke and I saw that life is all service.
I served and I saw that service is joy."

Nature notes: The yellow miniature iris plants that I brought home from my mom's before we sold her house several years ago are blooming beautifully right now. They seem to bloom quite early in the season compared to my other kinds of iris. I enjoy their cheerful color and the fine, veined lines of rust that stream out like a hearty beard.
