My chase began in mid-March shortly after returning home from our Georgia Coast workshop, the last hurrah before all began to “shut down.” And with all the plans for workshops, presentations and classes cancelled in a progressive domino chain, I began to look for ways to “make the lemonade” despite knowing that uncertainty was the only certain thing. That … and that spring was on “go” regardless.
What I know is that nature waits for no one. It happens and does not abide by any fixed set of rules or regulations, nor does it follow any specific timeline. It happens when and where it happens and is only guided or steered by factors such as light, water and temperatures. No one can hurry or slow down nature in its element. No one.
And for the first time in years I realized that I was to be home for a season … or at least a good part of one. And that season is Spring. It’s early May, and I am still home. That is how “Chasing Spring” began.
