I don't know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but here in Western Washington, Spring has finally arrived. It is miraculous to me that, in a few short days, the flowers bloom brightly, the animals venture out, even the disgusting little baby spiders are hatched.
All in just a few days.
Today is Easter, of course. And whether you are a Christian or an atheist, I think the day bespeaks a similar theme: life. There is life, both in present and in hiding, all about us. Just a week ago, the entire natural world held its breath, safe within its buds and webs and little caves. But, like potential energy exploding forth into heat or movement, the world does not stay stagnant. Life is insistent and invasive.
I suppose we are, as well.
Join me for a cup.
