“Each new year is a surprise to us. We find that we had virtually forgotten the note of each bird, and when we hear it again it is remembered like a dream, reminding us of a previous state of existence.
How happens it that the associations it awakens are always pleasing, never saddening; reminiscences of our sunniest hours? The voice of nature is always encouraging.” H. Thoreau
Isn’t it marvelous that the very word ‘spring’ implies a surprise – energy seeming to jump forth out of the earth? What of spring is arising around you?

I am loving Spring. Soccer season has started and we are outdoors for many hours every day. Love it. I’ve added you to the list of blogs I am reading on my sidebar, hope that’s ok! You inspired me to learn to knit. And while I’m not a runner at the moment, I am working on becoming a cyclist.
We’ve not had much real spring weather yet but the other day the kids and I hauled out blankets [and coffee:)] and I read aloud outside in the sunshine. It was wonderful! My nine year old is desperate to start planting.
