Spring pollen arrives

dances with winds tickles noses

 breathe in breathe out sneeze

Ears do their own dance

their actions  sends me to bed

calm down calm down please

Sorry I haven’t been around much. The early warm weather is making everything bud now. It’s awesome and beautiful except for the effect it is having on my sinuses and ears. I’m reading but I have spring-induced brain fog right now.

But, it’s so wonderful to watch the growing sea of colours.

Sunday Quotes – Spring

(Image via weheartit.com)

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.

Every spring is the only spring – a perpetual astonishment.

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.

ABCs Of Disability – The Letter G

I haven’t really done much posting lately about disability or chronic illness. Part of it is not being on the computer as much since I fell last month. I was at the doctor’s on Friday and I’m having x-rays done on my ankle and wrist to make sure nothing was broken. My ankle keeps getting better but my right wrist has only healed to a point. And, of course, I am right-handed. So, I’ll go get the x-rays done and see if I have something like a hairline fracture.

But, mostly, I think it’s because “Spring Has Sprung”. Finally! The temperatures have been warming up, finally going into double-digit (Celsius) numbers. As of this writing, it looks like we’ll be going two (2) whole days with no rain! April has been wet and cold. And did I mention wet and cold? Now, I either don’t have to wear a coat or only my raincoat. We can go out and play! Attitudes are changing and good moods are coming back.

Allergies have been kicking into high gear for those of us who suffer, but that’s OK because it means green and growth. Grass is growing, buds are on the trees, birds are chirping and the leaves of the perennials have been sprouting from the ground. Tulips have already bloomed. Others flowers will be in the next week or two.

So, I’ve been thinking of different “G” words lately. Growth, green, good and good enough. Spring is here so there is growth and green all around.  At times I’ve been feeling good, or at the very least, good enough most days to enjoy everything changing from dreary to sunny. And sometimes being good enough is very good indeed.
