Friday, March 20, 2015 – Did you know that today is The International Day of Happiness?  I found out about it today and it also happens to be the vernal (spring) equinox, where we are poised in the northern hemisphere of our planet of equal hours between day and night.  Spring equinox is often referred to as the “first day of spring” though where I live we have been having above average temperatures  for a while now.  Other parts of the US are having snow and colder temperatures than average.  It is so very critical that humans begin to understand how important nature is to us and that we are part of it.  What we do on our planet effects all.  Today’s spring ambassadors are blossoms and pollinators … a love story.
3:20:15 g h cl sig 3:20:15 hb front 1 a sig‘In Beauty may I walk
All day long may I walk
Through the returning seasons may I walk
Beautifully will I possess again
Beautifully birds,
Beautifully joyful birds
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk
With dew about my feet may I walk
With beauty may I walk
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.”
