Project 12: Nature

You'd think I'd be able to keep up with one photo a month!  I'm learning to let things go, though, and do what I can. To enjoy the good days and try to keep my head above water on the bad days...to remind myself that they won't last forever.

If you're going to get cancer, I recommend getting it in the spring (ha - like we have any choices in the matter!)  For one thing, hats are on sale at REI.  For another, there's something very comforting about having fresh lilacs blooming outside your window.  So even on the bad days when you can't get out of bed for long, you have sunshine pouring in your window, and glimpses of color, and little bits of fragrance when you open it.  I think it would be much harder, psychologically, to look out on a barren landscape.  Having new life springing forth while you're battling a silent battle gives one strength.

Such a beautiful outlook, Ellen. It's so true ... about spring. This was one of the first springs that I really thought, 'wow, this might be my favorite season - how did I miss all of this before?' So true, about doing what we can. You are doing amazing.
