The dreary wet winter has lingered on our calendars and in our bones. As we turn the page to March – month of buds, warmer winds, bird calls, and spring! – we feel encouraged.
Yes there will be cold days to come. And rain – all next week, in fact. But knowing that more warmth will come, next weekend our ways of marking time will change and bring more light at the end of the day, and days themselves will lengthen – this gives us hope.
As we look outside and gather inspiration, we also check within. How can we be more mindful, more aware? Perhaps being more curious about what moves us forward, taking time to sort the important things, and putting our thoughts into words?
Yes, that should awaken us – again – into a new season of life.
