Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
– Ranier Maria Rilke
Earlier this week, it happened; the sun and earth danced in such a way that, for equal portions of time, we knew light and dark. And then, just as quickly, we were pushed beyond the balance into a new season –- for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, Happy Spring!
Spring Rites abound: birds returning, daffodils bravely pushing through cold, dark soil to reveal their strong, sensitive beauty, and of course “longer” days – the journey home from work includes appreciating the sunset, each one later than the evening before.
More personally, I noticed this week that my Rites of Spring Begin with “B” for Blessings: Blessings for Boys, Birthing, Blogs, and Bees. I’ll be Brief:
Blessing Boys – please enjoy my post on the Ritual I co-created with Joel and Jessica for their sons, Isaac and Emmet;
Blessing Birthing – learn about the Ritual I co-created for Tristy and Justin, honoring their journey from unsuccessfully trying to make a baby to birthing new, child-free possibilities;
Blessing Blogs – when you read my blog it feels like a blessing! And, new this week, there’s a SUBSCRIBE feature, so you don’t have to miss any new posts!! Thank you, so much, for reading.
Blessings Bees – Ah, yes! Well, I don’t want to tell you everything all at once, so stay tuned for this story. Sneak preview? I bought a beekeeping suit yesterday. Buzzz, buzz…begins with “B.”
Happy Spring!!! Now stop reading this, Silly, and get out there to enjoy it…
