There are times when life is so busy that we do not allow ourselves any quiet moments to ponder, to appreciate, to be lazy, to rekindle our passions for our work. It is absolutely necessary to give ourselves permission to take those moments, refresh our minds, fill our souls with the surroundings that are our daily inspirations.

This month has been exceptionally mild, allowing us in the northeast to absorb the sunshine, breathe in the fresh air, basking in the outdoors, shaking off the cobwebs from winter and preparing ourselves for the tasks ahead. With spring just beginning, the flowering trees are in full bloom, the colors are fantastic, the warmth of the light amazing.

What do you find as inspiration in this season of transition? Whatever it is, be sure to take those moments, wrap your souls around them and save the memories for times when inspiration may not be so forthcoming.
