Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. Albert Einstein
The slow entrance of Spring after a long Michigan winter is filling me with a new awe for the natural world. To see plants that have actually survived under the hard crust of old snow greening up and unfurling their leaves is nothing short of miraculous. The turn of the seasons is a powerful lesson in itself.
I read the book of Ecclesiastes last Sunday, and came across that beautiful passage that reminds us that There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. As the seasons shift we need to change up our routines, so we are doing the right thing at the right time. Being wise to these changes not only keeps life interesting, but profitable. Now I am going to leave the computer to go check on the maple sap boiling its way down to syrup.
