Ahhh…Spring! The world is waking from its winter slumber. The trees and plants are budding and blooming,
the bees are busy gathering nectar and pollinating the flowers,
the butterflies are emerging,
the birds are migrating and beginning their nests,
and the lizards are emerging from…from…well, from wherever it is they hide away during the winter.
Everything is new and alive and awake…including me. Well, maybe not new, but definitely alive and awake. My mind is awake with thoughts. My lungs are filled with spring air. The very essence of my being can feel the world around me waking up and coming to life.
So here I sit at one in the morning writing while everyone else is sleeping and dreaming sweet spring dreams. I feel the need to create, and this seems to be the least intrusive outlet of my creative urges, as it will allow my loved ones to continue to slumber.
Yet soon, in the daylight hours, I will be out photographing the waking world and sharing its joys and wonders with you, my faithful readers. But until then, I will leave you with a beautiful sunrise
and a peaceful sunset
to enjoy until the ‘morrow.
