Palm Wednesday

Mother Nature must be going through the change.

Palm Wednesday

The calendar says we're two weeks away from spring, but this morning's snowfall would lead you to believe otherwise.

I couldn't help but think of Lent and Easter when coming across this palm in Washington Park. Its lemony leaves were a welcome departure from winter's contrast of dark and light. Charcoal shadows cast across the face of Washington Park and gleaming white snow dashed atop the park's open spaces.

My Lenten sacrifice has been a struggle, as it should be, and I wish I could stay I've held strong since Ash Wednesday, but I'd be fibbing.

But challenge is a good thing, yes?

Eager for for the return of spring and its promise of new opportunity.
