Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Walking on Wednesday ~ Spring has Sprung and the Circle of Life

There is so much to find during Spring. The world comes alive, and we notice things with such color and hope. I have spent the last few weeks completely enjoying the Spring, mostly in the gorgeous flowers that are suddenly everywhere!

We also noticed our bushes had some unusual activity lately. And look what we found!

We eagerly were anticipating baby birds, peeking occasionally at the nest when Momma wasn't there to view the beautiful blue eggs. The trademark of the Robin eggs.

So the weeks went on and the flowers bloomed beautifully, and started the end of their run. We check and check the nest. And one day....

Gone. All 3 gone. No shells to be found anywhere.

We were all so sad about this, even though we know such is the circle of life. It is just so special to see, and witness nature's blooming all around, and just as disheartening to see nature's circle that takes away potential life. Hopefully Momma Robin had a chance to build another nest, somewhere a bit higher up perhaps, and maybe she will have a few more blue eggs hatch into babies. Perhaps. Or the raccoons, who I suspect were the thieves here, will have a prosperous Spring.

Still, there is much beauty to be seen, and even some things that make me smile. That is what I appreciate about Spring, the new growth, the hope and potential of new beginnings, of prospering.

The animals are still out and about, and there are plenty of young rabbits around. Caught this little guy on the side of the road, plenty wary of me and Lady J. 

And with all the rain we have had, meaning LOTS and LOTS of rain, it should be a bountiful Spring. Let's hope it is bountiful for us too. That would certainly ease the stress, and make us appreciate our surroundings even more. I hope there is growth all around.

What is your favorite thing about Spring?
