For many of us, this is a week of quiet observance: Passover, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter.
It's been a reflective week for me; I've appreciated the spring break from school. It's given me time to slow down, to think, and get caught up on my life.
Outside the dining room window, my dogwood tree is full bloom. Remembering the legend of the dogwood, I snipped a few small branches to bring into the house, one more quiet observance.
