April 2020, Week 2
What signs of spring do you observe? The budding trees? The blossoms? New growth, emerging from the ground in response to a warm day - or seemingly even a warm hour?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This time, now, is precious. It comes every year, but it’s never the same twice. What you notice today may be gone tomorrow, and what is only potential today may bloom tomorrow, bright and new.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s notice. Let’s pause and pay attention. Let’s find the season, hidden in nooks and crannies, around corners and in gardens. It’s there, just waiting to be discovered.⠀⠀
