So somehow we have come to March. Where did January and February disappear to? a blink.  One minute it was Christmas then New Year's and then here comes Spring. Well at least on the beautiful West Coast. We have crocuses and daffodils pushing their way through the ground determined to transform this winter into something with colour. I know this is not the case for those of you back east and trust me I think about that.  How lucky I am to be into Spring already. Don't get me wrong. I love the seasons and all the stuff that comes with it. But I think I am definitely a West Coast girl. Always will be. There is a hopefulness that comes with Spring. We all go through stuff. And sometimes really bad stuff. But do you know what? Flowers will keep blooming. Children will keep growing. The sun will rise each day. Remember that ok?

So last time that I wrote was ridiculously long ago. I said I wasn't sure about certain beliefs. Buddhism being one. But having rethought some of it I also do recognize that the present moment can totally rock it. What I mean is that if you look back in life I am sure you can all remember some very special times that you look back on with fondness. The funny thing is that sometimes those times could have been as short as a minute or as long as a day or a week. This is where I think we are often deceived. Deceived by the notion of time. Time is really irrelevant when it comes to those essential and perfect moments. Sure it is important when we have to arrive at work or a particular place on time. But when it comes to those magical times then would you not agree that it can be an evening that perhaps felt like an eternity or a week that felt like a year. It was really all about the experience.

Life is amazing in that when you really think about it we just need to really grab hold of those moments. Don't let them get away.
