Musings . . .
In the upper Midwest, the month of May brings a burst of fresh green, and a rainbow of colors in beds of flowers, both wild and domestic. The trees and plants spread their "wings" to capture the energy from the Sun. Their alchemy transforms solar energy into chemical energy, and then carbohydrates and other organic compounds. Without this transformative process, we would not be here. So, when we gaze at the natural landscape, we are witnessing a life-giving miracle in its own right. Pause to give thanks.
“May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive.”                                                                                                                                   Fennel Hudson
