I was awoken with a tray: pancake, maple syrup, bacon, orange juice, coffee (roasted yesterday), and a Green & Black’s 70% chocolate egg.
Life is good.
Happy renewal season to you all. A March/April fertility festival makes as much sense to me in southern Western Australia as it did in Massachusetts.
When we lived in the North, Easter was the time when the Earth came to life again, the weather warmed enough to play outside, things began to regrow, and the world turned from white to green. In WA, Easter falls around the time when the suffocating heat lifts enough to go outside comfortably again, the rains begin, things begin to regrow, and the world starts to turn from brown to green. Aside from the hayfever, it’s my favourite time of year.
