Change of Season

Today at 12:57pm marks the official start of Spring, one that has been too long in coming for those of us who’ve had to endure the wrath of the winter of 2014.

Living in New England affords us with the opportunity to “enjoy” four seasons (in my case three). Growing up summer was always my favorite there was more freedom to explore childhood. The days were endless and always filled with fun and adventure.

New England is a mecca for autumn and it’s panoramic colored views of fall foliage, and I enjoy this time of harvest fairs and color. The start of school and football season are also hallmarks of the special time of the year.

Winter for me is like a bad relationship, it starts off wonderful with celebration and gifts and ends badly with cold dark tedium and angry storms that leave your heart cold and your soul looking for redemption.

Then comes spring, (which has become my favorite) life become light again, there’s hope things will become better, warmer and more beautiful and it does. The colors are clean and new like the air, with soft inviting pastels. Bird song fills the air like a symphony celebrating life. Everyday something new awakens, birds are more active, grass starts turning green, buds appear on trees, flowers start sprouting from the earth and with each of the glorious miracles my spirit and faith are renewed. Spring is a true gift one to be appreciated and celebrated!
