“May the sun bring you energy by day, may the moon softly restore you at night. May the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength onto your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.” – Apache blessing
Spring has finally arrived full force in Minnesota and has washed away the barren brown and dirt, and sprung new life. All around, trees are bursting in electrifying green and the fragrant blossoming trees delight not only the eyes but their scent beckons the soul.
I always feel utterly alive and reborn once spring arrives here after a long, cold and often dreary winter. The energy of life and rebirth captivate my soul, as Mother Nature stuns us with her beauty.
“Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air’s salubrity”. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confuscius
“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” – Kahlil Gibran
Perhaps Spring comes to remind us that not all is lost and dark. All that is cold and long shall soon be reborn and return. Oh Mother Nature, how I admire your resilience in face of so much strain.
