I love the odd seasons: Spring and Fall. They are transition times, and I'm not usually a fan of change, but during these two times of the year I enjoy the growing/turning of leaves, the opportunity for delicious food, the reminder that change can be a beautiful thing and the fact that I'm neither bloody hot nor freezing cold.
Spring just feels hopeful to me. It awakens something deep inside me to do, to create, to slough off the weight of the previous year and begin anew. Spring is heavy with possibility. So today, I'm enjoying a little taste of what's not truly coming for a couple months yet. I'm going to take this feeling an run with it today. What will I do? I'm not sure yet, but I'll let you know what I come up with.
What makes you feel hopeful? What stirs in you a desire to create? What are the possibilities for 2011?

This doesn't seem like a January picture, does it?
