As we say “Goodbye” to March and a warm “Hello” to April, we welcome Spring in all its glory. And it IS glorious: the profusion of brightly hued blooms, the warm days and pleasant nights, the cool breezes and trill of bird-songs. Spring infuses the world with color. It reminds me of the moment when Dorothy opens the door of her sepia-toned, monochromatic home and steps into the lush, vibrant, Technicolor world of Oz for the first time. I feel like Dorothy when I walk out my front door and see a world reborn: trees that seemed dry and lifeless are green and budding, bulbs that had been lying dormant have raised their faces to the sun. Songbirds greet me every morning and the sun lingers a little longer every night.
See what I mean? Glorious.
