The jonquils in my yard have emerged, blooming like glory. I was struck while outside this morning, this first day of spring, with a kind of surreal awe at the beautiful constancy of this mother planet.
Even as we’re surrounded with fear or panic, which as a species we’ve seen again and again over millennia–famine, war, plague 😦 — even in the darkest days, there is the arrival of beauty.
Make art about what’s emerging.

I’m reorganizing and rearranging and reshaping my tiny little house in the trees, moving furniture, getting rid of stuff.
Make art about discoveries made while spring cleaning or reorganizing. Or make art about the feeling of newness that comes after a big clean or reorganization, after ‘cleaning house.’

The rains have stopped and and the hadrwoods have awakened, and the drive home from campus today was a wander through every shade of green. The Guardian Oak is full and bright, and the woods are thickening. I stood with giants, all of us reaching for the sky.
Make art about the greening.
