Tale Weavers 58: Vernal Equinox


image: vernal equinox @ yogaflava.blogspot.com

March 20 was the vernal or spring equinox. Vernal meaning green or spring-like. The 27th is Easter Sunday. Last night I watched Jupiter waltz with the moon across the velvet sky. This afternoon I photographed the new growth on the hydrangea and rose bushes. Migrating warblers hopefully will soon fill our yard with bird song. Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal are “beaking;” he brings her a seed, and she takes it from his beak – a mating ritual we think of as kissing. (I’m talking about birds, not neighbours with the last name of Cardinal).

Life is renewing itself. Spring is a time when we think of rebirth, resurrection, renewal of nature, body, mind, and spirit. Of life refreshed. 

As Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote, and I paraphrase: “In the Spring a [person’s] fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” What does your fancy turn to in Spring?

Once you have woven your tale, please tag it with Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Tale Weaver and link back to this page. And, of course, you all are invited to click the mlmm linky, add your post, then stick around for colouring easter eggs. eggs

      Can’t even get WordPress.com to display, so I can’t read the submissions. I approved a few through the admin. — hope they showed up so you could read.
      I have no idea if this is even working. Can’t even get to the WordPress signin/let’s start page, so I guess what’s gone is gone. And, it’s all lost. Time to move on.
      I’m not sure my email works, so I’m not quite sure what to do about the 7th.

        Well I’ve read the ones I saw earlier
        Have you signed out and back in again?

        Multiple times. Started this afternoon/early evening.
        Yours is about the only one I can see — All other pages say I don’t have the right spocket with windows after I troubleshoot why I can’t see the page.
        I’ll see if I can find a way with windows and/or WordPress to solve this. Guess I’m not meant to blog.

        Its a technical issue my dear, have you asked the WP folk?

        If I could get to them I’d ask, but I get the same can’t display page message for them too, so far.
        I’ll have to leave it til next week — don’t know if can’t do all the f’ing around it’ll take to get to a WP person.
        Thanks for your patience.
        I tried to answer my gmail message on my new to me phone, but I’ve got a lot to learn about that device.

        Not much choice. I can see these notifications, and respond to them, but not even get the page where the comment is posting to show up:
        Sorry to have taken up your time (and comment space. I was/am worried about pulling my share.

        Its ok, if it isn’t working today maybe tomorrow when you aren’t so fraught might be better to look at it, though I do understand its VERY frustrating when what should be working isn’t and you can’t see why….

        Sorry, Michael, but doesn’t look like I’ll be blogging on WordPress again. A frustrating day of trying, and I still can’t even get to a Word Press help page (This page cannot be displayed, same messages as yesterday.)
        I signed in and out. I uninstalled and reinstalled wordpress, windows has been of little or no help expect to say there might be a virus in my computer which shouldn’t be as I have ongoing virus protect running.
        What I’ll have to do, I’m sorry Micheal, is email you the text and attach an image for the April 7 TW, hopefully still get a mr. linky (Yves might know if it has to come from me) and ask you to paste in the text, set up the image, and make sure it publishes.
        Because, still can’t even read damn word press blogs, let alone get to see my dash board.
        This comment is from the reader/stats page notification bell — I can go and see if the comment made it because I will be told that the page can’t be displayed.
        I don’t follow blogs so I don’t get much in my reader — on the reader page I can see it — likeMLMM’s , but I can’t visit, nor read comments, check linky’s etc.
        Just as well I decided to step away for a while. Looks like I won’t be stepping back without a lottery win to buy all new equipment and programs.
        I’ll really miss reading your posts. Now, I’m definitely getting teary, so as soon as I have the text for what ever the hell I can think of for April 7, I’ll email it — hopefully as soon as possible.
        I can see do the 21st FT, if the above method works and doesn’t create more issues than it solves.
        I’ll be in touch.
        Take especially good care my friend.
