I've been noticing it. A few things here and there.
Three days ago on a walk my eye spied yellow crocus in bloom. But today I really felt it. It was beyond the daffodils 4 inches out of the ground or the hyacinths beginning to poke up beyond the soil's edge. Last night's rain had rinsed everything clean again, but as I surveyed the landscape from my back patio (also known as waiting for the dog to do her business) it was perfectly clear to me. The air didn't have the bone chilling steeliness, and the raindrops hanging on the leaves were illuminated by sunshine that had a different tone to it. I am so aware of light, and the different angles of the sun and how it changes the color of light, shadow and tone. It really does feel like spring, now, in my most dreaded of months, February.
It's been a bit quiet here at Lelo in Nopo, but then, it's a quiet time of year for me. I haven't told you yet of my word of the year, but it is in full on manifestation mode. I've had some epiphanies going on in my life, and I'm preparing to emerge on the other side. Much like Spring is beginning to show itself in bits and pieces, here and there, I'll return to the busy crafting of my life, of gardening, cooking, preserving and homemaking....the things I blog about here. But in my quest to be constantly learning and growing, I'm excited about changes going on, and how these things will be changing along with me. I've been weighing pros and cons, sizing up the balance of life, and coming to terms with doing what I love and loving what I do. With that said, my podcast is on hiatus for now. But stay tuned for new news, big thinking, and focusing on the simplicity and loveliness of life....
