Spring Equinox 2016

Today is the Spring Equinox, when the northern and southern hemispheres are bathed in equal light. It is a day to search for balance within and without.

The bright green leaves are unfurling from the trees, our rose bush has sprouted leaves, and a few of the irises are budding. I feel overwhelmed and light-headed at the growth all around me. Frankly, I find it very difficult to find any balance this time of year, with all of these new buds, both physical and metaphorical, calling my attention to their promise of beautiful blossoms.

But don’t let this day pass you by. Take a moment of silence and stillness to discern: which blooms should be watered and tended? Which need to be “weeded” out? When we find the stillness within, everything comes into focus.

Bright Blessings to you! — Anne
