“If you take a flower in your hand
And really look at it,
It’s your world for a moment.”
Finding the unfolding of Spring right on time has the quality of restoring a semblance of balance amidst the increasing uncertainty and diversity of the human response to Coronovirus (Covid-19) Global Pandemic.
Seeking out the quiet of more remote areas to hike and wander.
There is this new appreciation for being out in the middle of nowhere and being able to set aside masks and gloves and feel the full sun on the face and the textures of the world.
Earth Day is tomorrow. She has brought a huge bouquet of Wildflowers for us this Spring.
And while we will not be sharing Meteors or Birthdays in person with the Grands this year, and miss doing so terribly, we are all, including you dear readers, in the midst of of the Lyrids Meteor Showers. They will be active April 16- 30th peaking on Earth Day, best just before dawn, and something spectacular to share. Most prominent in the Northern Hemisphere but visible in the Southern Hemisphere too. There is less than one percent moonlight this year. Lyrids are capable of fireballs!
(Shower details : Radiant: 18:04 +34° – ZHR: 18 – Velocity: 30 miles/sec (medium – 48.4km/sec) – Parent Object: C/1861 G1 (Thatcher)
