In the Abbey of the Arts , Soul of a Pilgrim, online Lenten art retreat I took (and am still finishing -- and yes, I know Lent is past), one of the most profound things the course leader Christine Valters Paintner wrote at the beginning was that no matter what happened, how long we strayed from the coursework -- because we all would, it is human -- Always Begin Again.
yesterday morning, rain fell and droplets clung to the branches of the pine tree outside my office window -- I must add that the temperature was predicted to climb -- up.
The weather had a different agenda and by mid-afternoon, after springlike rains all morning, snow covered the ground in a wet, heavy blanket.
I took a photo in the morning, wrote a poem and later took a photo in my back yard.
Go figure! This is spring in Calgary. Wait five minutes and all will change -- you can never get bored with the weather here. It's always full of surprises.
