senses. backyard (cherry tree) pause.

today, when the sun hides behind the endless white and grey sky, i pushed myself to get outside and breathe in the crisp air and notice the beauty that awaits if i just open my eyes, my heart...




i pause, close my eyes, feel my feet beneath me, and remember.  




opening my eyes, i look up and soak in the whispers of spring.




i lean in and breathe deeply as honey-inspired blooming fills me.




the water drips overhead and seeks, pools, shines. i reach my fingers toward the sparkling droplets.




and with each breath, each moment, each reminder, you are here.

These photos make my heart almost want to burst with happiness--they're so alive and green. It snowed here TWO FEET tonight.

I can't believe you have buds and blooms already! I'm so jealous, I can just smell those photos. Our yard is still buried under at least a foot of snow. I will live vicariously through your early spring meditations.
