Spring is beginning to blossom here in Colorado. I can see the green shoots of my Iris, and a few dandelions are starting to pop up here and there, green grass is poking through the earth, and my little crab apple tree is showing promise. Matisse said it so well…let’s keep our eyes open to see the beauty around us. In the midst of this turmoil and uncertainty… beauty is beginning to burst forth. I am trying to stay focused on the earth as it begins a new rhthym, as it awakens, and pushes forth color, frangrance, and new life. There is certainty in spring, it will come and give us a chance to find new joys.
