when we start over

This morning I was awaken by a sun that looked so unfamiliar. He was once my best friend, yet for quite some time he has been neglecting me for his friends in the southern hemisphere. However, today, he woke me up personally. Today, he said, "Good morning Mark, I've missed you."

As much as I would like to say that I love the winter weather, I now miss being able to see nature in full bloom. Sometimes it is in these quiet moments with myself that I begin to recognize the beautify of life and can her the voice of God. Watching the branches flow through a soft breeze on the surface of the creek water is so peaceful and serience. I need this back in my life. I miss the sun, too. But, today was just a preview for the beautiful spring we are all about to embark upon. A time in our lives to recognize our position on this earth, and support each other through thick and thin.

I am writing this entry as a reflection of my self. In Rospert's Drawing class, we are working on a third project which deals with identity. I can identify with the waters of the creek near my home, with the colors of the sky, and with my consciousness. Yet, to figure out one's identity is to question whether or not he or she is self aware. Am I? Are you?

I have a lot of research to do.

Mark, this is my favorite post of yours!

I love seasons, the constant progression from life to death to life, but spring is my favorite. Lighter air, hints of green, farmers' markets, love at its fullest!

Oh- I'm excited!
