.. promise of spring ..

“The spring wakes us, nurtures us and revitalizes us.
How often does your spring come?
If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it comes once a year.
If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or very frequently.”
    ~  Gary Zukav

Sometimes spring comes in so noticeably – the flowers pushing up through the top layer of soil, the buds popping out at the ends of the branches, the birds singing their beautiful songs in the morning air.  But sometimes the season has so many starts and stops and do-overs due to the lingering of the cold and icy winter.  In Second Life, we can celebrate the seasons we enjoy most at any time or we can create our own surroundings to fit our need or want.  I find that summer is the most popular in Second Life with autumn a close second.  Winter is fun and gets a lot of play in December.  We often bleed right from winter into a more summer existence… it is often difficult to discern between spring and summer in this virtual world and maybe even in our real one too… but spring is such a promise, it is often refreshing and new – the colors, the breezes and warming trends in clothing.  We should focus on spring… take the time to welcome it and savor that promise.

.. all made of stars ..

Sparkles abound … the stars fall from the sky.  She wonders if she should make a wish or two or more.  But do wishes really come true?  In her experience, the likelihood is slim. But she is still hopeful, still wants to make the leap…to hope, to dream, to yearn, to pray… she makes the wish as the stars continue to sprinkle around her. A dreamy state of being helps the possibilities seem endless.  She will wake up tomorrow… but for now… the wish takes her to a wonderfully happy place.

.. the smiles returning to the faces ..

It’s only when we truly know and understand
that we have a limited time on earth –
and that we have no way of knowing
when our time is up,
we will then begin to live each day to the fullest,
as if it was the only one we had.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
