001 – Heading home

The first day of spring is officially here only it still feels like winter. I desperately want to feel that surge of energy brought about by the sun’s warmth and new growth but the weather isn’t obliging. This has truly been the longest, most depressing winter I can ever recall. Even the beautiful daffodils in my garden look battered after the pounding rain and gale force winds over the weekend.

This evening Lynsey and I went out for dinner to celebrate my friend Ros’s birthday. I took this picture of Lynsey when we left the restaurant and we were headed for home. As I thought about our evening, and my wonderful friend, I realised that I now had that surge of energy I was craving. Spring has begun for me! All I needed was to be in the company of special people, sharing a wonderful meal, laughing together, and doing something out of the ordinary. We can create our own spring, independent of what the weather is doing. We can always start growing by seizing the moment and doing something out of the ordinary.

Yes, today is definitely the first day of spring.
