a new season

25 Sep

The world around me is springing to life.  The streets are lined with blossoms and new green leaves.  Everywhere I see the possibilities of a new season.

And here I am renewed.  No longer beaten down, freed from those people who would suck the energy and light out of my life.  Now I have surrounded myself with people who lift my spirits.  People I can trust and enjoy, so that even the most difficult day is satisfying.

My winter is over and spring has begun.  I stand here ready for this new season and all its possibilities.  And with that in mind, it is time to pick up the pen.

small moments

5 Sep

Some days just feel good.  There doesn’t have to be a big celebration, just a series of small moments which make you feel alive.

You wake up in the morning and the sun is shining and the sky is pale blue, there are new flowers and budding green growth everywhere you go, a song you really love plays on the radio, people smile wherever you go, you get some good news, you feel productive and it is effortless, someone you love gets good news, outside smells green and verdant, everything feels in its place and you walk tall.

I love the start of spring, and I love living life for all the little things which lift my spirit.  There is wonder in the steamy smell of eucalypt in the warm air after the rain.

Everything may turn on its head tomorrow, but for now, for today, for this moment it feels good and fresh and alive.

I am making a fresh commitment to creativity.  With the living buzz on the air, anything must be possible.

digging for spring

27 Aug

There is something so satisfying about getting your hands dirty.  Digging into the earth and planting life to grow.

Spring is on our doorstep and it is time to start new growth and plan for future harvests.  All around us new fresh life is starting to burst out, pale green and perfectly formed.  Flowers are starting their show and the air feels like it is getting ready..

Today has been about the spring cleaning.  Clearing away the winter weeds and preparing the ground for a fresh season.  Tonight is about the ideas, planning the next crop and the next blooms, so many things we could grow.  And then tomorrow…  Tomorrow is the first round of planting.  Such wonderful anticipation..

You spend the day out in the world, the sun (not too hot yet) overlooking your efforts and the breeze cooling you down.  You dig your hands into the earth, like a child shaping their landscape.  The smell is green and alive and intoxicating.

Whatever you plant, seed or seedling, will be growing and changing in front of your eyes for weeks and months ahead.  You are a part of life.  No matter the other mundanities that tug at you day to day, you are life and growth and change.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow.  And I am so pleased that spring is here and the cycle begins again.  I cannot wait for the next harvest and the beautiful feasts from my own grown crops.

      

whisper of spring

2 Aug

  

The first signs of spring are here.  There is still a chill in the air but the sun is shining on the garden.  The first plum blossoms have unfurled and down the street a cloud of yellow wattle changes the scenery.

This is the season of new growth and blooming possibilities.  Winter is getting ready to hibernate while spring stretches her arms across the landscape.

I am looking forward to days in the garden, and all the life that is about to wake up around us.  Spring is just a whisper on the wind right now, a hint of what is just around the corner.  That is enough to make me feel renewed and hopeful.  I am waiting for the rest of the flowers to bud and open.  Waiting for it all to begin again and bloom again and the new discoveries each day can bring.
