Spring is in the Air…

Do you love spring?  Are you like me and feel that spring is a time for renewal and rebirth. I love the flowers and the new growth appearing. The warmer days and cool crisp nights. The sense of optimism and celebration. The desire to be more active, yet also taking the time to sit quietly and listen to the song of the birds, watch the formation and changing shapes in the fluffy white clouds and breathing in deeply to smell the blossoms. (Then cough – for the allergy sufferers J). Springtime, when nature bursts with new life and the promise of the summer lay ahead.

I thought I would share a few quotes from great writers on their perceptions of spring.

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” ~ Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
“She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbor:

“Winter is dead.” ~ A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young

“Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring.” ~ Lilly Pulitzer

The last one is compelling because it speaks to how you choose to live every day, not only in the springtime. Sure it is easier to have a sunny disposition when it is beautiful outside, but on those dreary days to also live radiantly, ah that is to live like it’s spring.
