What wild and crazy thing does Spring make you want to do?
After the rains and the cold; after the dark, low clouds, what is it that creeps into the corner or leaps into the front of your mind?
In the Chinese calendar the equinox and solstices occur in the middle of the four seasons. We are almost half way through Spring and on to Summer, says my acupuncturist friend, Kelly Shaw. So let's get on with it!!
My wildness plays out in a garden. Any garden will do. But now, mine specifically. Last year we had one of our ancient Hawthorne trees cut down to save our roof and this winter the other Hawthorne suddenly dropped a huge branch that had reached toward its buddy. Now another smaller branch hangs precariously.
So lately I've been stroking this old tree's several twined trunks carefully (it's not called a Haw-thorn for no reason!) And I tell it how sorry I am that it's lost its friend and how glad I am to live with it.
We are each of us part of this tiny planet, no matter how we've been conditioned. We're connected to everything and everyone in ways science seems to whisper about.
But why wait for more evidence??
Today, for instance, how might you dance with nature, or your car, or people, or...you name it "like nobody's watching?"
