Hello, April, and all the wonderful signs of spring that you bring
Hello to daffodils and tulips and hyacinths
Hello to buds on the trees and morning bird songs
Hello to the return of gardening and camping
This month I will notice and revel in all those things as I also . . .

remember Ross Gay’s advice and lean into my sorrow as I honor the 40th anniversary of my brother’s death from a motorcycle accident
take care of my spirit with yoga and journaling, reading and meditating
take care of my body with good food, regular movement, refreshing skin care, and restorative massage work
make time for relaxation, human connection, and creativity
Hello, April. I’m glad you’re here.
