It's Spring!!

We got some snow today on this first day of Spring, but the sun was warm in sheltered places. Even the sharp wind felt fresh and exciting. It was a good day to celebrate the equinox. Standing on the cusp of another cycle of days, I found myself filled with joy and anticipation.

Here are some quotes to celebrate the season...

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood

  1. The way this image moves from realism to abstract is fabulous. The colours absorb you!
