“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson
We had snow in the high country but rain and slush along the foothills. Signs of Spring are everywhere. Enjoy your week!
And, we awoke to a third day of rain/snow mix. My weather app said it was 34 degrees at 6:00 am. Not sure how much snow they have in the mountains but I think it’s a lot. Farmers are going to love this. We have almost an inch of moisture. I took this image late this morning at Cathy Fromme Natural area. I’m pretty sure the higher mountains are white but with the cloud cover I can tell. Stay warm.
“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.” ― Marianne Williamson
“The only journey is the one within.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke
What a beautiful day we had yesterday. Actually the whole weekend was all about Spring. I took a walk out at the Arapahoe Bend Nature Area. People were out walking the dog, riding bicycles and fisherman all along the banks of ponds. I talked one fisherman and he was a grinning and bragging about the bass and perch they were catching.
