Three weeks ago I was searching for a flower of any sort and was happily content with seeing the swelling buds on the trees. Amazing how things can change in three weeks! Spring is at a full gallop now! So many things are changing–the abundant honeysuckle are fully leaved out and will soon show their sweet yellow and pink blossoms, the maple tree has small amber leaves that are starting to throw shade on the green, green grass, and the daffodils are in full lemony bloom.
The transition time marks the month of May. Schools are out or coming to an end for the year. Parents are moving kids out of dorm rooms when it seems like they just moved them in. Summer vacation or summer jobs begin. Graduations denote the end of high school days or college life with excitement and apprehension for the future and what it holds. New jobs transition college students to adult life. Weddings transition couples to married life. Endings, beginnings, change, new growth. Apprehension, curiosity, excitement, beauty. Enjoy the energy and promise of the May transformation!
