Quote of the Week: A change will do you good!
Rumination: Snow again. Rain. Cold. No sun, or little sun. Trudging to work, feeding the kids, no meat on Fridays, what am I going to wear today?...These and other thoughts are automatic, constant and cyclical. In this time of the Christian season of Lent, it almost feels like a time of lying fallow, of tiredness, of a desire for something fresh and new.
The magazine covers are full of the looks for Spring, and I know I am not alone in trying to will Spring along as quickly as possible. In the meantime, hold on, build a bridge and get over it, have a lovely cup of lemon tea, have a nosh and a chat with your friends....this, too, shall pass. My change was to buy some flowers and a can of paint! A change will do you good, and a change is coming if only we remember to hold on for it!
Mantra: A change is coming, coming is my change.

Salutation: In this time of betwixt and between, be sure that you are caring for yourself and your health of mind, body and spirit. Fallow is not dead; it is lying in wait, gathering energy, planning, repairing, restoring.
Bis vivit qui bene vivit!
