The vernal spring equinox takes place on March 19th this year, the turning point when the hours of daylight are more than the hours of darkness. Bring on those warm and life bringing rays of sunshine!! All this daylight is making us a bit giddy in the studio lately and is a reflection of the the awakening of life around the pond too. My eyes open in the mornings to sunshine streaming through the window and the sounds of birds singing again. I am reminded of what it felt like to be eleven years old with the excitement of waking up on a Saturday morning, realizing there is no school or church and the whole day is ahead of me. So, in keeping with the spirit of my inner child, I go outside to play as often as possible and getting a much needed nature fix after the long winter months of hibernating by the wood stove.
