Oh, seasons! I remember how much I love them. Having been in the tropics for the last 7 years, my notion of seasons had been completely forgotten and constrained to hot&wet, hot&dry.
So the glorious unfolding of Spring in the northern hemisphere is a revelation. Flowers. Temperate mornings and the sun on your face. The freshness of the air filling your lungs like air after a long dive underwater. Oh, my.
My first spring in 7 years - hard to believe how time accumulates like that. I suppose it's what they call growing up (in the sense that I won't really be grown up until I am about 89) - when a timeframe like that can sneak up on you.
So much change, so much uncertainty, and yet spring reminds us to stay rooted in the things - and people - we love, to appreciate a moment of sunshine on our faces, to stay grounded while still growing.
How is your Spring?
