Spring 2021 Welcome
Tulip, amaryllis, crocus peek up through warming earth. Cranes head north in noisy chevrons. Spring begins to rustle from winter’s hibernation. We also begin to move, encouraged by the arrival of longer days. This spring, the gift of welcoming spring appears to be more poignant following a year-long pandemic. As the opportunity to step gently outside of our quarantines evolves, so might our gratitude.
May we all accompany hope and gratitude as we lean toward the sun and one another. May there be openings in our hearts and compassion for one another. As we discover budding trees and flowers pushing upward, may we also rediscover the gifts of friendship and trust, generosity and growth. May we strive to encourage our higher selves to blossom.
