Cultivating Springtime

Banana_cultivationLots going on and coming up here.

I am a day away from a seventeen day vacation period from work –another Planned Vacation will be involved.  I’ve assemble a set of reading, have plans regarding who will get visits, know that Star Trek into Darkness is on the list. I have been organizing my life and work around this over the last few weeks to assure that I am all set and good to go for this experience and have been in countdown mode for well over a month about this.

Part of vacation time will be spent moving from old place to new place.  I found a slightly smaller but less expensive place that is a little more approximate to some key people in my life.  I have been packing boxes for over a month as well.  The dining room table has been disassembled and boxes are stored there.  Two bags of older sweatshirts and sweaters have been donated away as have six or seven piles of books.

Meanwhile, I have also recently reorganized my Outlook calendar as well as the task bar for organization and plowed through a severe amount of blogging in anticipation of my time away. All in all, this time all feels rather transformative and, while weary from months of hyperactivity have felt rather energized by all that is occurring around me.  It all feels flush with new possibility and opportunities… A beautiful new springtime which I did not chance upon but helped develop.

What are you doing to care and prepare for your own transformative springtime?
