What If There Were No Spring?

What if there were no spring? If the earth forgot to awaken this year? If trees decided not to bloom? If flowers didn't feel like opening up? If birds changed their mind about chirping?

If humans weren't overwhelmed with exhilaration, excitement and anxiety for the newness of life? For its change? For falling in love or falling out of it? For being inwardly ripe with inspiration and pregnant with ideas that are just impossible to hold inside?

Strolling though Central Park and its Conservatory Garden, I was simply blown away by the abundance, variety and ease with which nature produces its creations. And I am thinking why wouldn't we all ride on the waves of this magnificent creativity? Why would not we take advantage of this influx of life by taking out our dry paints or opening unfinished notebooks or brushing dust off abandoned musical instruments or just starting some crazy new project that will entice our existence and those around us with art, beauty and life?

And by the way, this is a call into action!


The world is full of color, music and rhyme

And not to feel them, I say, is a crime

And if you're tired or bored or can't see

Just talk to me, just talk to me, just talk to me!
