From Bear to Butterfly

"Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me." 
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The winter was long this year, and spring seemed to take its very sweet time arriving. My writing also has been in hibernation mode, in a continuous snooze of an alarm that no longer jolts me awake. However a few events over the past few weeks have begun to ignite my creative fire yet again; I am starting to awake with renewed energy. 

A birthday, the final one of a decade of my thirties. 

Baseball season.

And a trip (just Brian and I) to San Francisco.

(Most of the photos were taken with my iPhone as my camera became too heavy to carry for the long walks.)

And two very happy boys to see us return. 

With a new birthday year and the gift of some much needed alone time, I feel as though I have started spring cleaning the overstuffed drawers in my head, giving the welcome space for my creative self to emerge. I am crawling out of the hibernation of the winter of my life and cartwheeling into spring. 

Love & Light,
