Spring proseeds us by widing the scope of greens. New color has reached the highest mountain in Georgia which is on the edge of this valley. Wild hydranga and tulip poplar bloom with all the power of scent. Roadside and hillside, blackberry brambles show forht flowers among the brambles.
The only traces of the frozen barroness of Winter is the barely visible structure of mountains and trees. The strength gained from the silent reflections is only available in your own quiet. In the stillness & silence can be seen and felt all the forces of nature, both your own and the planet's.
May the truest love and strength of all nature be your guide in inner and outer harmony.
