And the delights of March, thus far
So many things I would like to comment on but first stinging nettles…turning the sting of a nettle into a treat to be savored…beautiful. Love it & Love Love you…and your words.
I love the show of delights! I listed to Ross Gays whole book after this episode, and I can't recommend it enough - the way he reads it is so joyful and fun. A related listen is Alie Ward's Awesomeology Episode.
I am such a winter person, I sometimes I have a hard time remembering to be okay with the warming days (though February was below normal here, so I have been very content with the weather lately). I do find myself delighting in every fresh bud I see on a tree. I am hoping this new season ushers in a reminder to find the new, find the pieces coming alive within myself too.
The changing seasons, indeed, don't happen in a instant. Your writing reminds me that this is a transitional time of year and that progress and change comes slowly and when the time is right. The natural world is a mirror to human existence and if we are paying attention, can inspire our own growth. Beautiful, inspiring words :)
