According to calendars and the threshold we’ve set, spring doesn’t begin until March 20. However, nature, as is typical, proceeds as its own pace as we seek to make it fit our arbitrary measures. The reality is all around us. Already plants are producing new leaves and flowers, responding to the subtle changes in light and temperature, proceeding on cycles we are evermore losing touch with. We’d do well to notice more how life is a process–evolving and unfolding, shifting and growing–and much less a rigid, static happenstance. Stop, look, listen, smell–use your senses to notice more; take in the perspective that can be gained from that which surrounds you. Seek out places that engage you.
