So, as I was saying*...you know, about the elusive light in February? The last time we had a chat?
Well, lets just say I'm elated that March has come knocking and pushed the brown, gray, icy-thing past us. March whispers of Spring. Green shoots peek through the monotone ground. Warm sun dances on faces as we sit and ponder. Bikes emerge from the garage. More rain boots, less snow boots crowd the front door and back door...and every door for that matter!
Life is full. Just like yours. Crammed with fevers and books. Warm meals and homework. Class plays and shelter projects. Play dates and soccer practice. "You are my Shun-shine, my only shun-shine..." sung by a two year old. Trips to see family and crazy-sweet cousin hugs and tears. Clearing out and bringing in. Crocheted afghans and bach suites from our cellist. Amazing soup ala the big daddy(he must share this recipe soon) and exercise. Yes, exercise. I know. Time to find our bearings as this season begins its slow transformation to SPRING!!!
Won't it be grand? I couldn't be more excited. It just seems like this year it will be brimming with possibility. Answers to age old questions. Time to soak up a bit of nature in less than three layers of clothing.
So, there it is. I'm here. Taking photos. Knitting. Tending. Attempting to read a lot. Thinking about my garden. Chasing after children. Recognizing when to stop and look. If there is anytime to do this it surely is Spring. The tiny buds waits for no man/woman. So you better get out there and notice.
Happy Wednesday to you all.
*As I was saying...a tricky way to get you to think that the month that has passed without blogging was imaginary. Not real. Just a parlor trick, if you will. Rather, I just paused in conversation and then resumed with what I was saying. Did it work?
Every time I walk the dog, I make sure to pass the only snowdrops I've seen in bloom so far. It may be snowing from the sky today, but I'm too busy with encouraging words for blooming bulbs to notice. I'm ready to trade the dirty snow for green leaves and flowers!
