Hello Spring, Goodbye Winter

 Spring is finally on its way. It is time. Time for the snow to melt. Time for the trees to bud. Time for the mud and puddles to invade every corner of the yard. Time for the pavement to become our canvas. Time for brown everywhere. Time for new life.

 The transition of spring falls naturally with the rhythm of my life. It seems that spring knows just when to creep out from under the snow. When my body and mind are eager for less time snuggled under blankets reading and more time sitting in the warmth of the sun on the porch. Less time building a fire and more time working in the garden. Less time sleeping in and more time waking with the sun. Less time staying in after dinner due to cold and dark and more time playing outside.

 I do enjoy winter, but I embrace the beauty and readiness of spring. I naturally become more self reflective this time of year. It is when I do my deepest soul searching. Newness is everywhere around me, and it inspires me to dig deep within myself and hash through who I am and who I want to be.

 So I say hello to spring and goodbye to winter.
