GREETINGS! Spring is such an especially beautiful time in our city – the colourful bulbs are peeking out from their winter habituation & the trees are dawning their fresh coats to salute the warmth & light emerging from the dark times. We are also celebrating the 14 bright gold medals won by our Olympic athletes! The streets are abounding in good cheer, pride & happiness. So we join with Mary Oliver:
Look, it’s spring. And last year’s loose dust has turned
into this soft willingness. The wind-flowers have come
up trembling, slowly the brackens are up-lifting their
curvaceous and pale bodies. The thrushes have come
home, none less than filled with mystery, sorrow,
happiness, music, ambition.
And I am walking out into all of this with nowhere to
go and no task undertaken but to turn the pages of
this beautiful world over and over, in the world of my mind.
