In like a lion.Out like a lamb.So the old saying goes.So long, March.Hello, bluebonnets!To everything there is a seasonAnd a time to every purpose Under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1).W-O-W.Spring it is.A plethora of blue.Plus green.And yellow and pink.Whenever you are sincerely pleased, you are nourished (Ralph Waldo Emerson).Take any road in any direction.One is bound to be pleased.Last year’s drouth is this year’s glut.And such a pretty glut at that.Up and down the highways. In amongst the prickly pear.Rampant in the pasture.Happiness is reflective, like the light of heaven (Washington Irving).Bluebonnets reflect light.They brighten and shine. Rewarding us for surviving months of heat.And lack of rain.The goal of life is living in agreement with nature (Zeno, 335-263 B.C.).Indeed.Contraction.Expansion.Yin and yang.Empty, full.Empty again.Although the world is very full of suffering,It is also full of the overcoming of it (Helen Keller).Feast or famine.Ebb and flow.High tide.Dry river.Buy and sell.We come, we go.We are what we think.All that we are arises with our thoughts.With our thoughts, we make the world (Buddha).Good rains.Good thoughts.Green grass.Cornucopia of color.What a wonderful world (Louis Armstrong).That’s Mason.
