Two weeks ago in Hawaii and today in Vermont. In Kauai we were surrounded by tropical beauty and growth, nectar to the soul. But here in Vermont, the day after Easter, there are signs of resurrection in the garden. Daffodils and delphiniums popping up, and lots of other little shoots and sprouts. In me, too, the parts that died back in winter are being pruned away to make room for new growth. More light and new energy. As we sang yesterday, Allelujah!
