The Second Coming of Spring

by Stephanie Casher on May 9, 2006

Okay, funny thing about the pic of the cherry blossoms… I actually snapped that photo back in February, the first time I got excited about the coming of Spring… Before Rainy March and Rainy April and the freak snow in Santa Cruz. (Gotta love global warming!) I’ve been hesitant to do a blog on the second coming of Spring, for fear that I would jinx it, but after several consecutive sunny weekends, and over a week without rain, I think it’s safe to say that Spring has finally arrived.

It’s about freakin’ time!!!

Look at my beautiful roses, in full bloom after laying dormant during an extended winter. I definitely feel like I’ve been in bloom the past week. Heck, I feel like a brand-new person in some ways. The hibernation is Done. The sun feels wonderful. Windows have been thrown open and air and energy is circulating. I’m riding my bike again, and getting some tone back in my legs and color in my skin. Back in yoga. And focused very clearly on the future and all the goals I’ve set for myself. The season has changed and I appear to have changed with it. Thank goodness — I was getting sick and tired of being stressed and cranky…

There is much to be done on my end. I shipped off two more copies of my manuscript today to the folks from the conference that requested it. Now I’m getting ready to enter a very intense writing/promotion cycle, gearing up towards my summer tour :-) (I leave exactly two months from today!!!) I have to admit that I haven’t been very productive lately, but I am committed to turning that around. With the renewed energy of Spring in the air, the impossible almost seems possible…
