Spring questions

It’s definitely Spring here in Toronto. It’s delightful, and it’s made me think of some literal-but-really-metaphorical questions for you …

(Note: it need not be Spring where you are for these questions to be useful!)

We’ve had the daffodils, then tulips, and now the lily-of-the-valley is just about to come into flower.

What’s blossoming for you? Where do you see signs of life?

It’s been cold, hot, and wet. And that was just the past weekend.

What weather are you dressing for? How might you be overdressed? Underdressed?

We harvested our first strawberry from the planters on the top floor patio. It was tart but delicious.

What’s ripening? What’s juicy right now? What’s waiting to be seized by you?

Marcella’s in her sandal-wearing season. No socks!

What are your small acts of freedom? What is it time to put away?

The black oak outside my office window is now fully in leaf. It’s the last tree on the street to get its leaves.

Where can you spy on the world without being seen? How might being last be just what you need?

The hammock is up on the front deck. Big books and naps beckon.

What’s an indulgence for you? Where do you find peace?
