This celestial event marks the start of the season of growth; "the emerging buds were a sure sign of spring"
"Springtime" to me means birth, renewal, growth, youth, and starting fresh.
I love spring! Especially the light.
The spring equinox is the time in the earth’s annual cycle around the sun in which day and night are equal in length, before the days finally start to get longer after the dominance of darkness during winter. The sun’s visual journey throughout the course of the year signifies a universal journey, which has been understood and undertaken by people throughout the world, and throughout time—the journey to enlightenment. The spring equinox stands upon the point of balance, upon which everything pivots in its motion, in the universe, in the cycles of the seasons, and within ourselves.
Spring gives us the chance to begin again, or at least renew ourselves. We look at the world around us, seeing life bursting forth in flora and fauna, and use this as a sign to reawaken ourselves spiritually. I’m happy to greet this time of year.
Nearly finished my thread catcher! Love the civil war reproduction fabric.
I visited a quilting friend last night. While working on my thread catcher we did some catching-up. Really looking forward to our next meeting. ‘She’ is working on one of Leanne’s House patterns.
And look what she brought recently.
A fabulous box of delicious blue & brown fabrics for another quilt.
Lucky for me, her daughter was visiting her too and so I came to learn that she is reading up on American History (period 1800 till 1960 – I think). I couldn’t contain myself, had to ask her about the content of the minor she is doing. I got all excited . Sometimes when you least expect it, you get a little gift. She is sending me the mandatory booklist for the minor she is doing. Can’t wait to read more about the American Civil War and on Judaism in America.
