Spring is Coming

Spring is coming here in Northern Michigan. What a beautiful season it is!

“The great pulsation of nature beats too in my breast, and when I carol aloud, I am answered by a thousand-fold echo. I hear a thousand nightingales. Spring hath sent them to awaken Earth from her morning slumber, and Earth trembles with ecstasy, her flowers are hymns, which she sings in inspiration to the sun.”

-Heinrich Heine

It’s been a little bit since I have posted (sorry about that!) but I am going to try post more regularly now. I decided to start this post with a short song by John Denver. This song kept playing in my head as I was at my family cabin in Canada where there was a resident snowshoe hare that could always be seen not far from the cabin. He was not that skittish and like John Denver, he always made me “smile a lot” when I passed him going to and from the cabin everyday.

“Tools was a baby rabbit, he was a friend of mine,

His mama and papa, brother and sister left him all behind,

  He came to live at our house, brighten up a couple of days,

   Tools, you made me smile a lot and I wish you could have stayed”

                 -John Denver, Tools
