Oh I'm sorry if you missed me, or our lonely, but see I have a good excuse.
It's March in Chicago. It should be cold, snowy, gray, rainy. It's been sunny, in the 80's and beautiful. I have a sunburn and mosquito bites. We have been soaking up all the vitamin D we can before Mother Nature realizes she flipped to many pages in her calendar.
We've been tending to the garden, freeing our little buds from the detritus of winter .
Allowing them to burst forth uninhibited
Reach towards the sun and grow and bloom.
As we spend our days working the earth and soaking up the sun the words spill from my mind. They fill pages and pages, in my mind.
See as I work the dirt and tend to my garden I am not only freeing my buds and allowing them to bloom.
I am freeing myself and blooming as well.
