Spring Forward


{ An obliging bloom from my backyard }

I've mentioned before that I've felt an unexpected sense of moving forward this year. It's really unexplainable. Who knows why we feel a sudden inertia in life, but I think there's no better time than the first day of spring to enjoy it. The sun is shining and in Church Hill we're anxiously awaiting the first perfect night to sit on our porches with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. 

The word spring, which appears in many languages, actually has quite a few different meanings . They all seem to communicate that same sense of movement I've been feeling. Here are some of my favorites.

Spring

{Old English springan; related to Old Norse springa, Sanskrit sprhayati he desires, Old Slavonic pragu grasshopper}

1. To appear or come into being quickly.
2. To arise from a source; develop.
3. A small stream of water flowing naturally from the earth.
4. A source, origin, or beginning.
5. A time of growth and renewal.
