Forward Motion



What a weekend. Holy cow.

However, in the spirit of onwards and upwards, instead of continuing to mull over all the energies and events just past, I'm looking forward to next week when I will play host to out of town visitors.

Though my apartment is extremely small, it is designed to be visitor-friendly. I believe the soul of the chateau loves having visitors, much more so than the house on Tennessee Avenue. Hmmm ...

The cherries should be in full bloom or close to it when my friends arrive; you can't plan for that kind of perfect timing. Though there's no way to predict what the weather gods will be up to, for in fact they are just as moody in springtime as we human beings, the city will be dressed up in pinks and whites. My guess is that the daffodils will be declining, but still cheerful, while the tulips will be opening in gardens up and down E. Capitol.

If the weather isn't perfect, we'll spend our time cooking together, visiting museums, sitting at the bar at the Matchbox, listening to music and dancing around the chateau living room.

It's always great to have something to look forward to, never more than right now, today, the first day of spring, following the supermoon weekend. Onwards & upwards. Oh yeah!


My friend's mother died yesterday, leaving her life on earth this time around riding on the energy of the supermoon. What a way to go! Wow.

You so nailed the spirit of spring, but you have been sailing on it's skirt hems since the end of February. The big white supermoon took away the last remnants of winter here, finally. Washington is looking pristine in your pictures today Reya, and so welcoming for your friends. Reya, of the light, happy heart!!

We had a few days that hit 90 last week and I was telling the sky I wasn't ready for that so here we are now into official "spring" and it's cold and blustery here in Phoenix. This morning my husband opened the hood on his old work truck and there, sitting on the engine, is a small bird egg :)
Happy Spring Reya!

Sweet! (About the egg, not the blustery day). Happy spring to you, too, Jeanette
