Spring calls us to growth! The tree is my perfect inspiration for these times.

 

As the sweet buds start to pop and their leaves begin to unfurl, there is a continual, never stopping impulse of “moving towards”…buds and branches reach for the light, the nourishing energy that creates and sustains the trees’ own life. And the roots keep reaching down to the darker earth, into the soil and retrieve other crucial elements which contibrute to the health and survival of the tree being.

As easy as it may be to move into the pleasure and lifting buoyancy which emanates from the arising of spring and the light in the air, it is just as difficult to move towards the muck and mud and heaviness which may still reside just below the surface of this springs inspiration.

 

But action cures fear! And by moving towards, moving into the places which feel stuck or disfunctional, they are filled with presence and awareness, and naturally, must change.

This work is crucial and allows us to move through older layers and reach the good stuff. The spirit! the play!

May we all feel the interconnection which joins and supports all of us. May we reach for this connection, may we be nourished in this connection. Through our actions toward awareness may we stand firmly in our true place.

 

Be well and Love life!

Sprung Spring

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Yup, it’s here folks.  Even in moments of other weathers, cold rain that leaves the mountains top white, or sun, that in some concreted doorway feigns the heat of summer, even then, spring absolutely cannot be denied. It shows in the smooth perfect shapes that are squeezing out at the end of every branch, and the early bulbs that push their stiff green, clean and defined up through the surface of soil. Spring is growth and form. And green and life.

So quickly they show themselves, and before i know it, they are fully transformed.

Precious Snowdrops!

White tulips, a birthday gift.

I am crafting up a spring storm. I am especially excited that easter is so late this year, as it means we get to enjoy bunnies and easter eggs for much longer than usual. Workshops at maplerose have been full of bunnies and flowers. One little girl finished her amazing scene of some flowers and trees, green grass and sunshine, looked up at me and said, “I want to go right inside my picture!”, I wanted to as well!! The kids were inspired by these bunny pictures I’ve made over the past couple weeks.


I am hoping that this spring allows me some frequent blog posts, for me right now that means once a week. I do hope you will check in and share in my inspiration and creativity!!
