If you can see the image above, you may agree that it epitomizes the transition from winter to spring, or at least it used to. This transition is far muddier than it used to be due to climate change. For the entirety of the winter, our temperatures have been fluctuating from fall temps to spring temps to bitter cold and cycling randomly since before the arrival of winter.
So, in the context of the image above, the rabbit would get close to leaping into the vernal warmth and joy of the coming season, but lady spring would yawn, blink her eyes a little and then doze back off into sleep.
Since the ‘official’ start of a calendar spring kicked ofk yesterday, maybe she’ll snap awake and stretch out her arms, bringing bees, birds, beauty, pollen and storms, with as much wonder and suffering as one season can muster.
This time of year is also another opportunity to implement change. It has been just over three months since the change of the new year, and maybe your resolutions have failed. If you are not want to believe that change can come any day, then you can view spring as that next opportunity to do it better for the rest of the year.
Here’s to blooming, beauty and change!
