Sunday, March 22, 2009 beginnings, fresh starts... beginnings, fresh starts and all that goes with it. That's where we are. Mother Nature is giving us a helping hand. For me it seems that spring is a better time for renewal than the new year. It's when the air is freshly washed and the soil has been turned to reveal new growth. We "spring clean" to invoke a sense of cleanliness, why not 'clean' ourselves of the old and renew our attitudes? Seems to me it's should be a regular part of our spring ritual. Enjoy your spring and do whatever it is that makes you the best you can be....

Slowly, methodically,
I retraced my footsteps,
reached far back into my memory,
remembered the moments of my life.
I looked for the where’s, when’s,
the what’s, and how’s,
the who’s and why’s,
that brought me to today.
I needed to find out what shaped me,
molded me, into the person I am.
The trip down memory lane made me realize
that I didn’t regret a moment of my life.
I didn’t want to change anything at all,
because changing only one moment,
one decision, would have changed
not only my life, but the lives of those I love.
When I reached my destination,
It was clear to me who I am,
And I was pleased to have taken the journey.

Finally...traces of spring

I opened my mailbox this afternoon to find a catalog from WhiteFlower Farm! That means, in my mind, that Spring is just around the corner. I've been getting emails from nurseries, but to see this one, in my hand ... just about made my day.

I've had one of those annoying colds the past few days and I am so tired of it. I'm hoping that it's on the way out. I left the office early and slept for a couple of hours this afternoon. Well, it can't hurt...can it?
That's all for now......
