May Day

Many months ago, Shutterfly offered me a desk calendar as a thank you gift, and I accepted. As I created the calendar, realizing it probably wouldn't arrived before late February, I noticed I had the option of choosing any twelve-month period over the subsequent year. " By May," I sensed, "I'll be starting a new year." So I created A World of Love, May 2011 - April 2012, showcasing photographs from parts near and far.

Today I started my new calendar--my new year. It's impossible to know how much was intuition and how much creation out of declaration, but I
find myself greeting May Day with a clean-slate freshness. Much has expired, cleared out, made room for an influx of new energies. Intention, creation: it is all a marvel to me. In the beginning was the Word. I've begun the year with adventure: exploring new places, seeing new scenes, tasting new foods, creating new stories--all alongside the manifesting Spring, the earth's reawakening from a deep slumber. Resurrection is all around, in all its glory. Everything in my part of the World is fresh and new and beginning. "Let there be light!" and there was light. As it always was, really, and always will be.
