i've been thinking recently that i'd like to start this puppy back up. today seems like a great day to do that. vernal equinox. spring time. usually i am a little crazy on the equinox. by usually, i mean all the years i lived in victoria i got a little crazy on the equinox. last year i think i was in bed with a cold. this year i am healthy & well, but taxed, and all of us in calgary are recovering from last week's huge snowfall. but today we had sun all day and the snow made rivers and lakes everywhere. whatever strange weather patterns we are having gave me a chance to make good on the lesson i learned last wednesday when it was sunny out: go play outside right now. your homework will still be there for you when you get back. last wednesday i did my homework instead and woke up thursday to a blizzard. tomorrow apparently we will also wake up to a blizzard, but i feel at peace with that now. this afternoon, instead of doing my homework, i went to the weasel head for a walk. i asked the universe what i needed to do to feel better and accomplish all i need to do by the end of term. the universe told me i need to start eating way more green things. so for dinner, i went to community and ate a huge salad with spinach and cucumber and pea shoots, and radishes, and beets, and oranges, and raspberry vinaigrette. it was beautiful. and then i bought myself some grocery presents. tea, multivitamins, rainbow chard, grapes, ginger, and a big tub of greens+. i felt a little pulse of the spring energy on my way home, low in my body. now i just have to nurse it along a little. i am ready to feel great and nothing is going to stop me!
