Today is the Vernal Equinox, or the first day of spring. Known in the Celtic calendar as Ostara, it is one of two days where daylight and darkness are equal in length. From this point forward daylight becomes a bit longer each day, allowing us to enjoy all the wonderful and fun outdoor activities.
Soon the flowers will begin to bloom, letting us know that winter is indeed behind us, as the warm sun transforms trees and fields to lovely shades of green. I love the cycle of the four seasons and the new life that it brings. It seems to mirror the rhythm of my soul as it journeys through the year.
