“The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.”
- Author Unknown

Life is good. Love it! Eat it up – devour it like a sweet peach and let the juice dribble down your chin. We have so many beautiful sights to see, sounds to hear, wisdom to learn, and it’s all right in front of us – and it’s all within us at the same time.

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune
It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing. Get a lot done anyway by concentrating on short tasks and short conversations. A checklist helps keep things smooth and organized. Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders.
