Eternal Spring …

“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.” by Hal Borland

This month at the Center we have been celebrating “renewal!” What a wonderful word and more wonderful still is the feeling behind it – the fresh new feeling of spring. The rush of excitement as we anticipate all the joy that we know is just around the corner.

And as we look forward we might notice that some of us are suffering from ‘Spring Fever.’ Our symptoms usually include an uncontrollable urge to sleep in the shade of a huge old tree in a big hammock while someone brings us sassafras tea. Here in Hawaii though, we always have this urge because our weather is like a perpetual spring time!

Celebrating the return of life is going on all around us. I don’t plant a garden in the spring, but the whole process is in my DNA and probably yours too. I remember, as a child, the seed catalogs and the garden designs … the constant exchange of information, clippings and tools.

Happy Spring everyone – happy renewal!
