Spring Forward…A Full Moon…& Pasta

Quiet the mind and the soul will speak-Buddha

Hello, sweet friend…

Spring forward!🌷

A full moon…

There is a physiological stirring that comes… (response to longer days and more sunlight.)

Entry to garden shed

I see it as a Divine nudge.

One which is giving me the impulse to get outside…

with a renewed energy and a spurt of new Hope.

I don’t know exactly what to do and sometimes not even clear what to do next...

So I might be out in my garden planning…

or perhaps I do more exercise…during this time I even yearn for a bit of spring cleaning

keeping busy with all the projects I have and see around me…

spending more time journaling…praying for guidance…a purpose…and direction I need to go toward.
