March Madness

March is traditionally the time of the mad March hare.

 

So in the spirit of temporary madness, I am choosing today to take a break from this blog. 

It’s been quite a journey, within the blog and my life. 

I began it as an indie author, following the death of my mother.

And it’s been wonderful to meet so many people and visit their creative sites.

So many folk with so much energy, humour and wisdom.

But I am currently not able to give this community or my blog the attention needed.

I hope all the inspirational quotes have lightened your days and given you a pause, as they did for me.

It was a joy to choose and repeat them.

I hope to use my spiritual path to help others one day in more interactive ways.

Perhaps all these threads will weave into a pattern that makes sense.

So on this first day of March I go into dormant mode, but not a single one of you will be forgotten by me. You have all taught me so much.

Have a beautiful March, and stay warm, if you are in this Northern freezing hemisphere.

Now where were we with the March hare… my very first pet was a hare – and how I loved that hare. All of us who are scatty feel a kinship with hares – but why do they behave in such an extraordinary way? Why do we?! It might take longer to work out some of our behaviours, but the beautiful hares, of course,  are running wild for love! 

‘The Lepus europaeus  portrays signs of unpredictable behaviour in its breeding season which begins in March. Hares in our fields are seen to be boxing,  jumping vertically for seemingly no reason and generally displaying abnormal behaviour.’

(source: Wikipedia)

So this March I hope you all find the child within you, in spite of your life challenges and burdens, and smile with the hare.

A March Blog

Got you!

MARCH

The earth and its life beneath stir,

Shaking off the cold, hard crust,

Bulbs erupt in bursts of spring glory,

and bask in the strengthening sun.

 

Joyous light, creator of all,

Push out your rays,

Reach the ground.

Reach us.

 

Globe of hope and warmth,

Raise the bulbs, wake the buds,

Stir the young, feed the earth.

Let us not forget your power,

And your joy.
