Seeds and Their Force
Thanks for the present, Fran!
March 2008. My friend Fran and I met halfway between my place and hers and she brought me a little present as a surprise. It was a brown paper package and had all kinds of nice things inside. I was thinking, while walking home along the river that day, about how much I appreciate the gift of friendships new and old right now. The month of March this year feels a little bit like a gift. No grand occasion, just brought out of Mother Nature's shoulder bag and placed there, on the table. What do I hope is inside? I want this March to be able to see and hear the world that is awakening now. I want to tune in to the sprouting seed in me. Time to look inside and garner my force. I am ready to put in the grand effort I need to push through, out into the sun. As another friend that I met for the first time in person during the month of March last year often says: Onward! That seems to be a very good word today. We are opening the windows this weekend, and giving the house a good scrub down.
