they are in peak bloom this week. my goodness, the splendor.
i needed a spring this year. i know it because of my utter embrace of it. my rejoicing in open windows and sunglasses and leaving home in the mornings with my hair still wet. shedding the layers on layers of winter and all that came before, spring invites a simplicity. it calls for a pause to look around and pay attention to the unfolding around me. it offers lesson after lesson on patience and growth and transition, on the growing that happens in the in-between spaces. lessons worth showing up for, again and again.
