Morning all!

Spring is offically here. I know I am so happy to have the warmer weather returning and the tree budding. I think Spring in TN is actually prettier then Fall.

So did any of you celebrate the coming of Spring in any special way? Love to hear about it!

Since I was involved with one of my medical issues all I could do was be out on my balcony on the 2nd floor and enjoy

Doing it in your heart and mind is what counts the most Tommy. Thanks for sharing.

It just kind of passed me by. I am still reacting physically in exhaustion due to the time change and I was in a lot of back/hip pain, that comes & goes. My Circle members, since the Circle is so very small, didn't get together as everyone's lives were on overload. :( I wasn't physically together enough, either, to do much in the way of observance, except my internal "connection" and ongoing "conversation" with the Lady & Lord, Guardians and Totems that I always have. I feel "sprung," like one of those old metal spring toys that I can't just this moment remember the name of, that's been uncurled and can't get back in it's shape quite yet. :smileytongue: Did get out for a walk on Tuesday, in between rain storms, and felt the chill breeze and enjoyed the mixture of sun coming through the dark clouds, blue sky peeking out here & there. Lots of verdant green grass here, in yards and on the hills, plus flowers from avid gardeners along front yards and surrounding the trees planted in the parking strips by the curbs. Daffodils, flowers whose names I do not know, pink, purple, even blue, whose faces I enjoy seeing. I love the "weeds" of "pretend" clover, whose little yellow heads wake up in the morning and open to face the sun, and close and go to sleep, when cloudy or getting dark (could never figure out why they're considered "weeds;" they are a lesson in hope and positive energy, seems to me...). My Mika dog keeps me physically present when we walk, so I don't float away just living in my mind most of the time. :smileyvery-happy:


Blessings,

Gypsy

I know what you mean about feeling "sprung". This has been an especially stressful month for me, and I really do need to remind myself to take time and smell the flowers. Literally! My dog too is awesome for helping me keep my head on straight, Dogs just know how to follow Tao, we can all learn from them.

The very basic meaning of the word "weed" as a noun, means unwanted, without value and is typically applied to something that grows in the wild and takes over.

To be honest, I dont consider any plant a weed. They are all part of Nature and all part of us, and have a purpose on this planet just like everything else. They are in the food chain for someone, or provide something this world needs or they wouldnt be growing in the first place. Its only "man' who has deemed things good or bad. They are all part of Tao and part of the balance in the cosmos.
