THE SPRING SEASON is a wonderland of new beginnings. Fresh ferns have sprung up through the 1001 Steps in the Ocean Park community of Surrey, BC, with the promise that each life will unfurl to its brightest potential.
There have been technological and personal challenges along the way of creating my first blog. Although I will continue to post there, I find the need to construct a different place for overflow pictures and thoughts amid a virtual and physical neighbourhood that is ever-changing.
Much like the buds I captured recently at Elgin Heritage Park in Surrey, the new season gave me incentive to start this second blog where I will post additional art, photographs and writings.
Pondering the lessons of nature, there is art to discover everywhere in the natural world. I love how rain plunks down on puddles painting soft circles.
Smatterings of rain throughout spring encourage new growth. I see green creeping through faded grassy swamps.
Bright colors are beginning to lace through darkened bare branches.
The sun is making more frequent appearances as earth travels the sky.
Petals, sprouted seemingly out of nothingness, have already started to fall.
Although spring has yet to turn the corner, thoughts of summer are never far behind. How eagerly we push time as seasons revolve.
The true nature of time is a mystery but it is clear that hours feel like minutes in happy times and minutes feel like hours on difficult days.
However slowly or swiftly the days go by, seasons circle as if in a mystic garden where life re-seeds itself to heal and grow.
