Dances With The Daffodils
For oft, when on my couch I lie,
in vacant or in pensive mood,
they flash upon that inward eye,
which is the bliss of solitude.
And then, my heart with pleasure fills,
and dances with the daffodils.
They really were dancing since they were fluttering in the breeze so much that it was hard to take a photo of them!
Daddy had a wonderful meal prepared for us. Fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, green beans, cornbread and butterbeans from his own garden! Afterwards, we sat outside on his front porch and rocked in his rocking chairs just looking out at a beautiful day with the temperature about 70 degrees!
Now, I meant to say in my last post that one of the few movies that my Dad has ever enjoyed is the movie, "O, Brother Where Art Thou". I really meant to put this in my last post about him, so here it is! That is not George Clooney singing of course, it is Dan Tyminski, and he is a solo artist but you might recognize his voice from Union Station with Alison Krauss. Oh, and the actress who plays George Clooney's wife is Holly Hunter. Holly is from Conyers, Georgia! She gradutated from high school the year after I did and of course, she was in all the high school plays. Someone from Conyers has won an Academy Award! I used to do airline tickets for her sweet mother when she used to fly up to NYC to see Holly perform in her plays there. Holly Hunter is in California now, of course, but she is a Georgia girl too!
Let's see...William Wordsworth, My Dad, Southern food, O Brother Where Art Thou, Dan Tyminski, Alison Krauss, and Holly Hunter... can I cram anything else into this post? Oh yeah, how about have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
