spring is here

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere March 20th is the first day of spring.  If you live in the Southern Hemisphere you have to wait until September 22.  It’s because the earth is round, it tilts and sometimes we’re closer to the sun than at other times.  That’s how I understand it and I think you could repeat that theory at a cocktail party, but I’m not sure I would use it in a term paper. Anyhoo, think birds, flowers, sunshine, melting snow and rushing rivers.  When Lee first decided to name glassybaby, many of the names she came up with were ‘springish’; bark, grass, hidden moss, new fern, rich beautiful colors that are still popular today. I think for her it stemmed from the comfort of being grounded and the hope of renewal— that no matter what happens, we can always start again, dig deep, reach for the sun… and bloom.  Happy spring.  xo Debra
