It is nearly the Vernal Equinox. These apple blossoms were trimmed from our trees a couple weeks ago. They are on my kitchen table…a promise of things to come, even if forced along.
Outside my door is another story all together.
Today we got about 8 inches of snow with a modest layer of ice.
Currently my life is a lot like these two photographs. On the one hand the new trainer I’m working with is a bud unfurling. Like all new things there’s much to learn. The fact that some of these lessons have little to do with my physical body and much to do with interpersonal relationships and expectations is not lost on me. There is great hope that many fine fruits will be harvested, however, there’s some shoveling to be done before biting into that first crispy apple.
I hope that Spring arrives quickly, fiercely even. I am so ready to put the heft of winter to bed for another year. How do you all feel about the changing of the seasons? Do you live in a place that is more static seasonally than the Northeast USA, and if so, would you recommend your area as an ideal place to live? I’m doing an informal survey regarding ‘place’ and I’d appreciate your input. Have a wonderful day, whatever the weather.
Early wishes for a blessed Vernal Equinox/Easter/Passover/Good weather 🙂
