Feelin' Groovy...A March Mix

The Light is Back! We have more daylight. But that's not all. It's a different light of brightness, crispness and tinges of color. There is a warmth to the light I have not seen in awhile. No longer the dull light of winter, this the new light of March triggers a change in my perspective. As I notice the spaces in my home dramatically altered by the way the light inhabits them, I too change in response to the way it inhabits me.

With the brightness, my eyes wander from one new perspective to the next. Gone is the desire to hunker down with a good book as a way to change my perspective. I get edgy to do something and I no longer can much tolerate a passive pastime like reading. I must get out and move in this light. It has so much to give me.

Albert Einstein's Birthday was this month. So in the spirit of Feelin' Groovy, here are some quotes from a man who got it!

Imagination: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Reality: "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

Intuition: "The only real valuable thing is intuition."

Education: "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."

Peace: "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."

Problems: "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

Curiosity: "The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

Truth and Knowledge: "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

Death: "The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there is no risk of accident for someone who's dead."

Mystery: "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom his emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: His eyes are closed."

The Waters of March. This one always makes me skip and dance lightly. The Waters of March written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and performed by Susannah McCorkle

Now go with the flow and I'll see you on the flip side of Spring.

Hugs, d
