Come meander with me on the pathless path of the Heart
in these anecdotal,
sometimes inspiring, sometimes personal meanderings of the Heart's opening in the every-day-ness of Life...

Snow Melt...

I am maybe one of the only ones I know that is sad to see winter leave. I am a winter lover.  In a mere 10 days it will be Spring *on the calendar.* J  Fortunately here in Colorado we continue to get snow through the month of March, and if we’re lucky into April; this year to make up for the severe drought we have been in.  We got a snow fall Saturday that was magical. I wish I had gotten pictures.  The pictures below are of the snow melt today.  Sigh…  Reminders that all things pass away; all things transition, transform into their essential nature, and the never ending cycles of life continue. J

 “I would like to live like the river flows,
carried by the surprise of my own unfolding.”

John O’Donohue

 “The same stream of life that runs through the world
runs through my veins night and day
in rhythmic measure.

It is the same life that shoots in joy
through the dust of the earth
into numberless waves…”

Rabindranath Tagore

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power.

They speak more eloquently than
ten thousand tongues.

They are messengers….
inseparable from love…”

Washington Irving


  1. Picture and word flow here melt my heart! x

  2. I'm happy to see and feel your tributes to winter. Thank you, Christine.

  3. A nice reminder that everything passes away / is reborn at every moment.

    1. Thanks David :) And thanks for the reminder of the rebirth in every moment part :) I'm still hibernating :) lol

  4. Lovely. I too adore winter but need all the seasons and changes.
    John O'Donohue is is so eloquent as are your photos and graceful meanderings. Andrea

    1. Thank you Andrea :) I'm sure I'll adjust, as I always do :) lol

  5. Me too— sad to see winter go, but also winter weary! So I'm enjoying every (weary) moment of cold, drippy, slushiness. Of pale, tired body. Of feeding birds and squirrels and fox so they can nourish new babies in this silently thunderous turning of season. What IS IT? Spring, for me, is SO powerful, so intense, it leaves/finds me wobbly kneed, weak and in awe every time.

    1. I can imagine you are winter weary! Minnesota really gets tough winters! We are mild compared to much of the country, usually brown most of the winter with the occasional snow fall to cheer things up a bit :) I love the transition time between seasons as well. They say we may get rain this weekend and temps near 70! Boom - Spring :)
