For those who think we are not connected to the Earth and its many changing seasons, I implore you to look at yesterday as a prime example of the thought behind that notion. Although Mother Nature has been confused of late and is unsure what type of weather she should be serving at her luncheons, I am glad I was invited to the last two day’s feasts!
Mid to late March is a questionable time, at best. We have been served snow storms, damaging winds, hail, rain and a myriad of other weather systems. Yesterday was an almost perfect spring day, although the temperature was only 7 degrees, it was sunny and absolutely remarkable. I have more of a tan now than I likely will in July or August.
The mood of human beings is noticeably elevated on days like yesterday, especially at this time of year. Lawns are raked (not mine, it’s still buried), patio furniture is assembled and set out, and although we know there is a chance of another random snow fall….we don’t seem to care.
I feel energized in a way I have not felt since the warmth of the sun left us last fall. There is a vast difference between seeing the sun in winter and feeling its warm kiss on your cheek after the spring solstice has arrived. The last two days were radiant and my mood could be described the same way. I have color in my cheeks, a tan line on my shoulders and an energized consciousness that I have not felt in months.
Thank you, Mother Nature, for seeing fit to make us feel invigorated and welcoming a new week on such a high note. Hopefully you will remember how blessed we all felt this weekend and alter the forecast of snow and below zero temperatures predicted for later this week. I don’t want to go from my happy mood to rocking back and forth in the fetal position.
Happy Easter everyone! I hope you had a great weekend.
