Today, I saw a flock of ducks fluttering across the dreary clouds in the late morning. Strange since it is only February, a gentle reminder that we never know what to expect. It felt like a tiny miracle; the first sighting of our migratory friends, bringing with them the promise of Spring. We are going to tap our Maple Trees this weekend, since the temperature is above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. This is the time when the trees begin sapping: pulling all of the stored sap from it’s roots up through it’s truck and out to each limb. Before we know it, there will be buds and then the slow unfoldment of each perfect leaf. So beautiful. I will be posting more about our tapping and syruping process here, and on our website / social media outlets. Visit us at http://www.natureseconomy.com
As the weather begins to warm up and I begin to shake off the cold, begin to turn outwards again, I am integrating the meditation below. Cheers to renewal & rebirth!
“Eastern Sun melt the cold from my bones, curtain rise. Take the darkness from my eyes, breathing in. Pulling life into my lungs, as a child, I am born again.” -Ayla Nero
