Photo Challenge: In a Land of Playful Awakening

The enzymes that bring Spring to life still lie dormant in Michigan, as we await our annual verdant awakening.  But, soon the green shoots  will sprout and local swimmers will take to the waters.

“Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.”
– Jean Piaget

Photo Challenge: A Wish to See into the Life of Things

With blustery winds announcing March’s arrival, the fervent wish of Michiganders is for the return of Spring–for grey and white landscapes changed to green, for life reviving a dormant earth.

While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

William Wordsworth, Lines Composed a few Miles above Tintern Abbey
