The days are getting longer, the sun shines bright well past dinner, and the sunrises lately...stunning! I am a lover of all seasons, each one provides my heart and soul with joy. I have mentioned before that what I enjoy the most though, is the shift in the seasons; the in-between days when Mother Nature gifts us a little look at what is to come. It's in the shifts that I find the greatest joy, the farewell of what was, and the welcoming of what is to come. In the dark, cold days of winter the spring seems so far off, but then a day like yesterday glows bright and with it a reminder. In the shift Mother Nature reminds us that the dark and cold will eventually move to warmth and light. She sits in the dark, draws inward, reflects and when she is ready she steps back into the light, the abundance. And we, just like her, do the same. Our lives are a mixture of dark and light; without the dark we wouldn't truly appreciate the light; without winter, we can't truly appreciate the return of spring.
Soak it up, my friends. Dance in the sunshine, play in the puddles of melting snow, turn your face to the light and let it fill you up.
Happy Spring Equinox!
