Regardless of the faith you practice – may this Spring season offer a new season of growth, discovery, and beauty. If my understanding of Easter could be captured in an image this statue says it all.
In one word: gentle.
On the outside this season is about thaw, flowers, and cleaning.
On the inside this season is about hope, renewal, and recalibrating.
While the words are beautiful the process requires pressure and can be painful.
For a butterfly to grow wings, and a flower to bloom, and a person to get one’s life back on track to some degree change requires loss.
It is with this awareness I offer a dose of “hope” loving the way I love with links and an evocation:
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
