Remind Yourself of Spring

Happy Enkutatash — the Ethiopian New Year’s!

Well actually it was yesterday, but I goofed!

Enkutatash comes after a long rainy spell; leaving a world of vegetation and flora coming to life in its wake. In celebration of the holiday, children hand flowers to everyone on the street.

If you are like me though, I live in the Northern Hemisphere – and here in Washington state we are enjoying the best time Seattle has to offer: a point in time when it’s usually not too hot, and yet our own rains have not started either.

But you know fall is certainly coming.

So take a moment: buy yourself a bouquet of lovely flowers to remind yourself of the glories of spring. Extend your own personal “Spring” just a little bit longer.  It’s amazing the uplifting affect simple flowers can have.
