Hello Spring!!!

“The spring wakens us, nature’s is, and revitalizes us. How often does your spring come? If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it comes once a year. If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or very frequently. – Gary Zukav

Winter has handed the scepter off to Spring and nature begins the transformation of Mother Earth. The warmth of spring defeats the chill of winter and the growing season begins.

The hillside that was barren in the winter is now beginning to pop with the blooms of the redbud, wild plum and dogwood. Wild flower blooms begin to populate the prairie floor.

The offspring of the animals can be seen by their mother’s side. The spring rains begin watering the flowers and trees. The farmer begins the job of preparing machinery so he can plant his crops. Mother Earth has come full circle with the rebirth of nature.

You have to take the bad with the good. I don’t know how many times I have heard this in my lifetime. Sometimes I think that saying is very well represented by spring.

Spring storms can wreak so much havoc on nature. Tornadoes destroy everything in their paths. It has no mercy for anything in it’s path. Then it is over just like that, the sun pops out then a rainbow appears. The bad with the good.

I’m continually inspired by nature, and the rainbow is one of nature’s greatest phenomenons. The sighting of a rainbow never fails to bring a smile to people’s faces. They signify optimism and positivity: with them comes the sunshine after the rain.” – Matthew Williamson

So spring has officially started. Won’t be long and folks will begin opening their pools. Hoping you all have a safe and prosperous spring.

Spread the love and be kind to one another.

    “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”

  2. Happy Spring. These next weeks will also see fishermen checking out their gear, acquiring tags early so they can get into season fishing when the horns blow… I remember dad, in boots and standing in our long front drive with few obstacles, casting his lines. Thinking he was checking for tangles etc…I asked him what why he was casting into front yard given it wasn’t near any fish carrying water. He looked at me as if I had two heads, then, as he turned to cast again, said, “perfecting my cast. Figure if I can catch anything out here, I should have my limit in no time”. Left me dumbfounded but giggled as I walked away. Mom had seen and heard us from the porch and without missing a beat said, “he practices every year. Never gets any better a fisherman, but he keeps trying”, then she turned and walked inside. I sat down, grateful for the bench on the porch, and carried a smile all day. I decided they were both crazy….until I caught myself “practicing casting” as I walked to and prepared for a day of fishing on a lake just outside Austin…and had to stop … I was laughing my behind off. Like father, like daughter, and nuts don’t fall far from our family tree. We used to gather at the base and compare notes. 😊

    Once again, Wayne, love your blog. Happy Spring!
