The beginning of spring is unquestionably the most magnificent period of the year. We cast off the oppressive cloak of winter’s overcast days, incessant rains and too-many-layers and burst into weeks of graduating optimism. The sunlight begins to draw out further into our evenings and a drift of summer scents become ever more apparent. Our bodies are more readily exposed to the sunlight and we stretch our legs in the renewed warmth.

To my mind, spring is not so much a season as it is a feeling – of new beginnings, of cleaner houses and burgeoning adventures, of feverish plans for summer and renewed energy within myself. The September vernal equinox translates to a new birth for our walk of the planet – a new birth of creatures, mind, and soul.
