Ready, for the lengthening of days and the warmth that comes from a sun that likes to linger well past afternoon tea (and chocolate:) which has somehow become habit over the winter. I love Spring…if you listen carefully, you notice that the birds sing their song just a little bit sweeter. There is promise, in the newness of the season yet to come. I am waiting for the glow of that special light…daydreaming it…and wishing it to find me soon ~

Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who made the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories….
…to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light…
good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.”
~ Mary Oliver
On the shortest day of the year, I smile, knowing the journey of the return of the light begins…now. Happy Solstice, all~
