Yesterday marked the Vernal Equinox and the First Day of Spring – an awesome time of year when the Universe makes one of her magnificent costume changes. It’s like a meteorological whistle's blown telling us to get off the couch and get going – clean up, get started, mo-o-o-ove!
I love Spring! It’s not just a change of seasons it’s the season of change -- fresh starts, second chances. And it does seem to spring
on us, in just an instant buds bud, grasses green, temperatures warm.
Almost instantly I am moved to well, move
-- Spring Clean – not as some domestic goddess ritual, far from it. I don’t do it for any other reason than I am hardwired to – it’s a sense of moving stuff out in preparation for…. I haven’t a clue. But that’s what Spring does to me. It moves me to get ready for something. And whatever it is? I want to make sure I have plenty of room for it!
The Welcome Mat is out!
