I am looking forward to the renewed spirit that spring brings with it.The blossoming daffodils and crocus have been uplifting after a bitter winter combined with a particularly sad week spent following coverage of the disaster in Japan. It has been hard to stay focussed on anything other than grief- I find myself obsessively thinking about the loss of life and home, and how I can not even imagine what the affected people are feeling. But, as many people have noted, I am inspired by the strength of the victims, and their will to strive forward.
Through these trying times, I find the best remedies include thoughtful hikes, long trips to the library, and continuing my support for Japan relief efforts.
