monday may 19

today i was preparing for another day of work on a spring landscaping project in our garden, slipping on my work gloves. as i shoved my right hand into the glove, a pine needle, hidden in the last finger of the glove, lodged itself into my pinky finger, jamming under the fingernail, causing me to recoil in surprise and pain, and drawing blood under the nail. it was an ominous beginning to the day.
