A great, uplifting thread! And points out the differences we experience as a result of climate regarding Spring!
Here, Up North, it's a BIG DEAL (right, PALady?! :) No more snow! (Well, hopefully!) Warmer winds! Longer days/twilights! Birds return! (TexasJen, we get your gooldfinches now!) Tender, courageous new shoots of daffodils & crocus peek out! And the slant of the sun is fresh and bright!
Oh, yes! A Spring day can do wonders! And what it does for us is better (almost) than the medications we need to take to get thru those long winter days & nights of CP....at least from a spiritual standpoint. Meds are necessary, of course, and help us heal. But today I took hardly anything & I'm sure it had a lot to do with being outside, in the sun, on the beach, listening to the birds, feeling the warm breeze....there is great healing in all that. For body & soul.
Enjoy the longer evening light! And thank you again, Chutzie, for leading us down this restorative Spring pathway!
