March 2019: Spring

After a time of winter, after a time of grief, of discontent, of mourning, of darkness that is emotional or physical…. After such a time, Spring comes. It tends to come upon us slowly. You are mourning a loved one who has meant more to you than anything and your days are counted by sorrow; then one afternoon, who knows how, you realize suddenly that for a moment, you have been happy; maybe you awoke that morning and sorrow was not the first thing you felt. You are a cancer patient and have battled the effects of chemo for a year; than one morning you wake up and realize, with a start, that you feel well, that in fact wellness has been stealing upon you. Or you have struggled with unhappiness but suddenly a moment comes in….only a moment, but still a moment….and you get a glimpse of being happy again.

Changes are often quiet, like Spring, beginning deep down, as a small stirring toward something new. Spring is coming! Spring begins with stirrings only; there is still mud to deal with and the ice hasn’t fully broken away. On the first warm days, it seems that everyone pours out onto the streets. Dogs catching frisbees, skateboarders weaving back and forth. Runners are out. The ground is softer. Buds are peaking through the branches. Bulbs are rising up. The breeze is at times warm and it carries the songs of birds coming back from the South. The stirrings of Spring are the stirrings of the heart and soul toward joy.
