Marvelous Month of May

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

The Winter in my heart seemed to wait and wait for the month of May. Thankfully it is now here! Trees and flowers are in bloom, the world is once again green and lush from all the April rain. Although the weather is still damp and chilled, the sky was blue today and filled with puffy white clouds. Just right for walking. And breathing.

Life returns to Earth as it stirs my heart again. Once more I feel energized, willing to start (and finish) creative projects. Enjoy the people I love by actually seeing them in the days and weeks ahead instead of just chatting on the phone. The calendar begins to fill so quickly when the weather is better. Graduation parties, weddings, birthday celebrations, gatherings at the lake. Squeeze in time for meeting with friends for coffee or walks, exploring new to me areas in town. Scheduled training classes to keep me current and prepared for the next school year.

The waiting remains. There is nothing I can do about it. It is there. But the presence of the wait isn’t as dreadful with the beauty of May surrounding it.
