Redbuds, dogwoods, lilacs
Beautiful May Day! There is only one choice, to go outside and enjoy it. Yesterday, a group of five women performed a clearing ceremony on land where a person died last week. In the midst of all of this beauty, her body rested in a green field as her spirit ascended. The circumstances of her death were unfortunately violent. People grieved, wondered how such acts can even be conceived in someone's mind. This was not the only place in the world where bad things have happened. Yet, on this day, altars were placed here by unknown visitors. Flowers arrived in vases and poems were laid on a tiny table. Hearts were open. In most people, everywhere, hearts are still open. Let us vow to open even more to beauty, love and the tender feelings of our hearts.
