George Eliot said, "If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heartbeat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence."
Wouldn't it be something to experience the natural world so intensely that we could hear the roar on the other side of silence?
I love walking around my neighborhood, especially now that most of the snow is gone. Little green shoots are sprouting out of the ground, the birds are singing and life is beginning anew. Spring energy is hopeful, gentle at times, joyful, and a welcome relief after a long winter. Always.
