Art and Life and Springtime in Vermont


This is a perfect picture of Vermont in the early spring. Some of the winter gear has been washed and put on the line to dry. To get to the clothes line, I have to climb over a bit of snow. But the sky is blue, the air is warmer, and the sun is heavenly. This morning we woke up to more Covid cases our area, more vaccination appointments, and snow covering the ground again as I walk out to the studio. My morning inspiration sometimes comes from just opening a book to a random page and reading, and this is what found me this morning, fittingly. I hope you have a sunny, healthy, and hopeful day.


Though your destination is not yet clear You can trust the promise of this opening; Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure; Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk; Soon you will be home in a new rhythm, For your soul senses the world that awaits you.” -John O’Donohue

From ‘To Bless the Space Between Us’

I love doing the same: grabbing a book and opening a random page as a sort of oracle for the moment. I wish I would have been able to explore more of Vermont beauty when we were living in Québec (we were "neighbors", after all).

That is a wonderful poem to read first thing in the morning. Every day has new possibilities. It's also why spring is my favorite time of year. I hope you continue to have warmer days in Vermont!
