Spring is Here!
“I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.” ~Anne Lamott
Though Los Angeles’ weather is temperate, we still think it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate the changing of seasons. While we may not be experiencing the euphoria of the East Coast or Midwest today, seasonal changes still give us reasons to reflect on days gone by and opportunities to start anew.
And what better season to start anew than Spring? After dark and difficult, grumpy winters, Spring brings with it more sunshine, more rain, the chance to plant something with a stronger promise that it might grow tall and strong, that it might survive after all.
If in the winter, no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn’t stick to your writing routine, couldn’t make the characters come alive on the page, couldn’t find the right words to even begin, DON’T GIVE UP. Spring is here now, and you can plant again, water again, look around and pay attention and listen; and when we’re ready, you can pick up the pen and start anew.
