Spring is upon us...

Traditionally,
Springtime is a period of high level growth...
of new beginnings...
Is the phrase "new beginnings" REDUNDANT ??
In any case, we take this season...
or at least,
 we are ADVISED to take this season....this "growth period"...
and to sprinkle it with CONTEMPLATION....
with ASPIRATION....
with GREEN....
with BIRTH....etc...
And in so doing, we are, organically,  forced to really LOOK at
WHERE we are...
HOW we are...
What we can do differently...
What is, in fact, WORKING already...
We think of children..
of ""off"spring"""....
Of plants and trees and grass coming, yet again, to fruition...
all in their own, provocative, yet predicatable, time frame...
We think of LOVE..
of "SPRING FEVER"...
WHAT is SPRING FEVER ?
How do we CATCH it ?
Bottle it ?
Is it CONTAGIOUS ?
And what of religious ritual??
Passover Seders...
Slaves in Egypt....
Easter Egg Hunts....
Resurrection....
Are they ALL the SAME thing ?
 WHAT, My Loves, are the lessons of SPRINGTIME ?
Are there lessons ?
Thoughts?
