Springing Blossoms

This Spring brings us so much sunshine and new growth! For all you dear friends in offices and cubicles during the day, do look around carefully if you haven’t still! It’s Spring, and it’s awesome !!!

Druyd is strongly being drawn to the source of this Spring awakening, and we can all see its nourishing effects. Mary has just returned from her long trip home, from Australia. Not even we have heard from her still, but the word is she’s here now, and she’ll most hopefully tell us something about it in her blog :~) Dudo and Danka are building their house in the forest! Working happily and devotedly on their incredible project – home, studio, and new Duende workshop in the woods! I am near to finishing my solo piano (!) album, an old project that has decided to sprout from its seed.

So much commotion can be felt everywhere around, so if you would like to, let yourself be taken by it, and know that you are taken by it! Riding the warm, rising wave of sunshine is so pleasant this year…

Springtime Poetry

(I guess this is a two-part blog post, so here goes two :~)) I’m not a type of person who was ever much into poetry, but today a beautiful Spring day has changed me and allowed to enjoy its odorous, blossomy verses. Great poetry was always too big, too direct, too strong, and too deep for me; I’m not sure if you can understand this, but I was always a bit frightened by its unpredictable depths and sharp, straightforward truths. I would have said that feeling comfortable around powerful poetry was for superhumans, not ordinary mortals. An image that comes to me when thinking of great poetry is thunders blasting from titans’ mouths, something not to be trifled with. Poetry is words of piercing, merciless truth, combined in elegant and intelligent beauty… pretty scary, right ??? :-O

But sometimes it can be understanding and compassionate of our “small everyday lives”, just like the gentle spirit of Spring all around us; this is one of my favorite poems. Quite light and bright…

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn

A cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.

If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,

This is the best season of your life.

  1. Spring is my favorite time of year, when everything around is beginning to blossom with life. The trees outside my window are already lush and green.
