Whatever your religious or philosophical persuation, the celebration of springtime is hard to miss. This annual ritual is an integral part of our culture, embedded in the fabric of our species. The confines of the winter season burst and we are hurtled into a new world of seemingly endless possibilities. Sunshine is amazing, is it not?
All of those days spent cooped up and cold may lead us, upon entering the light again, to reflect on the meaning of life itself. It certainly doesn’t hurt (although it might pinch a little) to think about where we’ve been and where we are headed. It’s always encouraging to have a goal. I feel a quote coming…as Robert Browning so eloquently enquired,
“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?”
Naturally this applies to women and children as well. So don’t be afraid to reach inside and challenge yourself. Although all this reaching can be exhausting, our culture could use the exercise.
