“Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment. “
As I was looking over the pictures I’ve taken this week of the natural world coming to life around us here at the Doublewide Ranch, I was thinking about how they look very much like the pictures I took last spring and the spring before that. Yep—happens every year. But every year, I am amazed anew at the sweet miracle of spring. Sometimes, all I can do is walk around with my mouth open in astonished wonder and whisper Thank You.
I also wanted to give you a break from the somber heaviness of my two previous posts. No doubt, you are breathing a big sigh of relief.
Here’s what’s new at our place:
“Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life…There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature—the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.”
