The sun is shining and the birds are singing. It's definitely the day before Easter. I've always loved Easter: the promise of new life, resurrection, the dawn after the long, dark night. I've also always enjoyed the other side of Easter: the chocolate bunnies, the egg hunts, the gathering of friends and family for feast and conversation.
Spring officially arrived two weeks ago but the weather decided to show up on the tail end of last week. Oh has it been delightful! The courtyard looked a mess after the hurricane of last autumn and the ME/Fibro flare-up induced neglect of winter.
Thanks to the gorgeous weather, I've been able to potter about outside and get the courtyard mostly in order:
How has your week been? Your writing? Your creative ventures? My mind has fully awakened to the new birth and resurrection themes of Spring this year. I've been sketching ideas, doodling dreams, and seriously shifting some priorities. There are so many ideas running 'round in my head, I get dizzy at night trying to sort through them all! And, of course, my mind has not been at my day job in quite a while. I knew I had to sit down, take stock, and figure out what I really wanted to work on and what needed to go back on the shelf for a bit longer.
Such a refreshing last few days!
