This light in my stairwell was captured at 7:13 PM this evening! Ahh. It was bewildering for a moment, and then I just sat on the top step, and wrote happy thoughts in my journal.
Although school has been inordinately busy lately, I have been finding so much joy in every aspect of my life. I attribute this to the transitioning that's happening outside. I spotted the first shoots of green in the ground today, and couldn't stop smiling.
I know, I know, I already wrote about the North Hills, but I keep going up there to walk, and it seems new and wonderful again every time. The curving path along the golden hills is an endless source of peace right now.
Is there anything quite so refreshing as the warm wind in your hair?
Don't mind the fuzziness of this picture, but I also am so excited about the project I'm working on. I did some experiments this weekend, and had the newest version of my Sedimentary Layers watercolor turned into postcards. I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out, so we'll see what happens next.
With all this excitement of warmer days and new life, I wanted to share this quote with you. It's from a local collection of writing about agriculture, and there is a short essay included by Barbara Kingsolver.
"Recall that whatever lofty things you might accomplish today, you will do them only because you first ate something that grew out of the dirt."
Such a lovely reminder.
