Anyone else feeling like their neighborhood is especially wintery this year? In the breaks between storms, I take myself on walks close to home. This tree seems to be blooming early and under a grey sky. I feel nature's poetry as I, too, desire for the hope that I see in these bright blooms, while I feel sad and grey in my heart and mind like the sky. As usual, I'm having the experience of holding opposing feelings in the same moment. Thank you to nature for being my role model.
