A heart’s season

a little green

things floating around and things taking hold

And with a few more stitches, I just about finished it.  After some silly bitching about the coming snow,  suddenly I said to myself

It's Spring in My Heart.

Resulting in a few scattered seeds and a bit of new growth.

Then I went outside to bring in some wood before the snow tonight.

And then...

just patchwork. holding.

Can you see what is different here?

It is not built in a spiral around the moon.  A Just Build It cabin.  Maybe we can just call it  Shelter from the Storm

    just YAAAAYYYY to your happier hand ‘n spring brilliantly springing forth!… how the pieces of Shelter from the Storm all hold each other. my heart sings.

  3. It’s been the same here…really cold and down to freezing each night, there was snow in the forecast for a moment. But there are more dots of color each day…the primroses that have wintered over, the earliest tulips, a few quince blossoms. Maybe spring always starts in our heart?

    story of my life- there she sat waiting

      exercise. less typing on my phone. hand brace. massage (the man’s job) and new…accupressure, should have known, dad was into that.

      sewing seems to be ok.
      too much computer really. trying to just stick with posting.

        So glad it’s better Jude. I’ve been doing acupressure every morning for over four years…can’t imagine not doing it now. It helps with anything that’s painful…and usually makes it disappear too.

    Is it not a wonderful thing when we recognize our limiting thoughts and thus the natural world rewards us & affirms us.

    Sheltered by the storm but not boxed in; with our gentle hearts we melt the cold & let warm thoughts grow.
