(And I promise it's not an April Fool's joke...)
I've been wanting to get back to this here old blog, and ramp up my creative efforts in general, but the moment just hadn't seemed right yet. But this morning, sitting at our beautiful old dining room table with the sun - finally - streaming in the window, surrounded by the beauty created by my girl for our Easter/Welcome Spring gathering, I can feel the urge upon me.
This very late spring we're now having (I hope I hope!!!) has definitely kept me dragging from the winter blues and dampened any motivation to embark on new projects. It's truly amazing how much a little sunshine and warmer temperatures energize me. I spent all day Saturday working on the tragedy that is our current backyard thanks to the installation of a new sewer line in February. It's very depressing to contemplate - the destruction of our fairyland - but I'm trying to embrace partner's optimistic suggestion that this is an "opportunity!" to make it what we really want. (But it's hard to forget that the fairyland it was was a big part of the reason we bought this house in the first place...)
I'm not sure exactly what direction I'm going to take the blog this go round...the idea of "transitions" keeps wandering around in my head as there seem to be a lot of them in my life these days. I think there be will some of the usual day-to-day life happenings - my girl, chickens, gardening, food, friends, and soon - bees! But maybe also some reflections on all the bigger things that seem to be going on in my world lately...very cosmic...
