And then there is pink, or red, maybe purple or lavender. All of them popping from green stalk: Dogwood, Cherry, Tulip, Azalea, Lilac. Lifting their blooms to the sky, perfuming the air, announcing to any who have not yet noticed - spring is here. And my heart goes dancing because it is totally gorgeous outside.

And my heart stands still as I think about the pain, the awful loss others in my country and the universe suffer today. Though on this day I am spared personal grief, I send prayers with every shovel of dirt I move, each plant I place.
