Today’s a sunny day, and seeing the spring flowers peeping through encourages me to also think about growing and expansion. After the last few months of rain, I find myself searching for a sense of freedom, like the flowers I also feel like I’ve had to push my way through the earth after months of hidden, inward growth,- or hibernation! So today’s work reflects a desire to reach up and out, to challenge myself to create and keep going!
