This lovely lotus is a great image for us here in the Northeast as we are in the thick mud season.
This time of transition between seasons, just like some transitions in our lives, can be a bit messy. The ground is squelchy and unsteady in places beneath our feet. But in the wet, dark, murk, new life is sprouting, pushing towards the light. Soon, inevitably, there will be leaves, flowers, Spring births and re-births.
The snowdrop blossoms are already peeking out and in no time we’ll be swapping our muck boots for sandals!
