Turning the Corner

This time of year always brings to mind the hope of Spring and the days ahead of feeling the warm sun on shoulders while on the back of my trusty steed. Her movement is slow and languid and I can feel the gentle breaths as she strides forward ever so carefully carrying her companion.

My burden basket has been mostly empty these past days of cold and chill and now is the time to fill it will all the hope and intention of emptying it in yet another year of growth and movement forward into knowing who I am.

This day my burden basket carries the hopes of others that are written on gifts of the Earth and then slowly emptied into another container as I complete my small steps to enriching the lives of others and taking back in return with grace and gratitude.

I shall fill it with stones that are marked with meaningful words "give", "reward", "strong", "forgive" and "movement". it is filled with sage, crystals and all the things that are most important to me that I have found in my travels across this land.

What do you have in your burden basket?
