Spring: A Renewal - April 20, 2012
It is my favorite season. Fall used to be, but I really have shifted over the years. Maybe it’s because of spring being more generative, and as I get older, that is an energy I prefer. Fall used to represent different things to me, probably hardwired from my youth: Football games, bonfires, and let’s face it – parties. And now, spring has that healing, restorative energy.
I have lived in a few cities and I have to say that Maryland/DC metro is the prettiest display of spring. This year it came about a month early, but we will not complain. Of course my husband bought a snow blower this year, and it remains unassembled in our garage. A sure anti-snow strategy: buy a snow blower.
We just had the mulch put down in the beds and it looks just gorgeous. I stopped this morning and just sttod still. Taking in the beauty of the flowering dogwoods that will likely shed their blooms in favor of green leaves this week. The daffodils and tulips are now gone, and the irises are peaking out, and the bleeding hearts splash pink joy throughout the garden.
Spring has so many possibilities. How can we use this season of rebirth to refresh our own vision for our future?
What is next for you?
What do you wish you could do if there were no limitations?
If you could clone yourself, what else would you be doing?
I am optimistic and energized about what the rest of 2012 has in store. What blooms are you nurturing in your own life right now?
