“The promise of spring’s arrival is enough to get anyone through the bitter winter!”
— Jen Selinsky
Ah, the sweet smell of spring. It’s such a refreshing time! The warm sunshine feels so good on the skin, as it melts away the winter blues and brings a bounce back on our feet. Colourful blooms are popping up, and it’s the perfect time to start doing up the balcony garden. My balcony garden is shaping up with my humble efforts to keep it clean, bright and colourful through spring and summer but even more than that, I’m taking all efforts to keep my soul in tune with the season—trying to recharge my batteries, taking a cue from Mother Nature, adding a spring to my step as well and keeping positive.
It has been a tough start to the year on many fronts but I’m not giving in or giving up. The Cassia blooms on our street have been lighting up not just the road we’re on, but the moods too, as the residents set off for their respective destinations every morning. Sharing today a few shots of this beautiful Cassia tree inside our apartment complex captured this morning on my way back from the morning walk. Tell me what you think of them. Do you have them in your city too? We see them bloom a couple of times here in Bangalore but they look their best in spring.
I know it’s midweek for most of us, so while you get on with yours and I with mine, let’s keep the spirit of positivity, light and hope in our hearts while we deal with our daily share of challenges:
“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own hope. And whatever your beliefs, honour your Creator not by passively waiting for grace to come down from high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen, right now, right down, here on Earth.”
