Spring is Flinging


Even after three springs in California, I cannot believe how fast Spring emerges here. Being a Midwestern/East Coast hybrid, I'm used to gentle tantalizing peeks that emerge after a brief warming spell usually in late February early March. Just enough to know the cold isn't going to last that much longer, but long enough you start dreaming of soft greens, loamy earth smells and the first warm wind that you know will be with you for a few months. Your energy seems to grown and your mouth begins to anticipate the first asparagus to appear and other greens.

Here in California it's fast. It is a in your face brashness, that trumpets I'm here enjoy the show for a few days because I'm marching right on to the summer season. I caught these flowers in 80 degree sunlight (admittedly warm even for this part of of California this time of year). I know they'll be gone shortly. It's a reminder to grab your moment of art where you will, because it may not be there when you return.

I was also inspired by a lovely dance/music collaboration by Alessandra Ferri and Sting. Stretching out and using the gifts given:
