The day before yesterday marked the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Nature is waking up from its sleep – even here in Vermont. The warm weather is not really typical – but what I am referring to are the small signs and changes – I walked out of my house the other morning, and heard the birds singing again – moss is starting to grow, buds on trees are swelling, the hens are laying eggs. This midpoint is so fascinating because it happens regardless how long Winter continues on. It is so easy to see Winter as this unchanging time of snow, ice and cold, but beneath and around all that are small little miracles of life awakening.
Maybe this is the origins of Valentine’s Day!! More than just the birds and buds are stirring!
