Spring

Blossom by blossom the spring begins.

Algernon Charles Swinburn

Saturday is usually my recovery day. I allow my body to relax after a busy week of interacting with my students. This year has been extra challenging in so may ways, and my body can’t wait for Saturdays, but today I woke up with a lightness in my heart and a feeling of renewal.

Today is the vernal equinox – blackberry winter – season of grass – spring! I don’t know if is was the sunshine peeking in through the blinds, the knowledge that my son was getting his vaccine, or the fact that I slept in for a change, but I felt a peacefulness that I haven’t felg in a very, very long time.

Blossom by blossom, cool breeze by cool breeze, Saturday by Saturday life is beginning again.

  1. I can totally relate to this feeling of lightness. I think the promise of spring had a deeply rooted hidden power to offer up a feeling of hope and renewal to even the weariest of folks. May that lightness continue well past today.
