Welcome March!

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period ~
When March is scarcely here.
~ Emily Dickinson

"Like a restless heart looking for love, the frozen earth yearns for spring. But to rush a season or romance is to miss Life's subtle nuances. March is our go-between. So change your mind about change. It's here today, gone tomorrow. Lighten up. Luxuriate in the fullness of waiting. Stop juggling until you find your balance. Celebrate new rites of passages. Let Mother Nature nurture. Cultivate sacred space. Find the "inscentive" to make a clean sweep. Get lucky. Weed your closet. Send ghosts packing. Play around with alternative remedies - the color of daffodils, the fragrance of lavendered linen. Take a deep breath, have a good cry, puddle-jump over problems. Stand still, so you can spring forward to a fresh start."

~ from Romancing the Ordinary by Sarah Ban Breathnach

A lovely March entry. And a precious picture, to go with it.

Oh isn't that lacy parasol, just heavenly??? -happy sigh- It's almost a symbol of that which a lot of us, really like/love. Lots of we 'Pretty Bloggers' in Blog-landia. :-)
