I get so excited when I wake up each day and its lighter. I love this time of year when the dark mornings and nights are becoming a thing of the past. I don't mean to wish life away, but I love the hope of Spring when the bulbs will be pushing through and blossoming all around.
I seem to follow the sun into that hibernation phase through the winter months - perhaps I was a bear, or something in previous life, and I still have that drive within me to hunker down into the subconscious world of dreams and symbols.
As much as I appreciate that time of deeper, inner growth, its always nice to know that the time to surface into the brightness of the new year ahead, is on the horizon.
