Ready for a spruce up? Well…spring is here! From sprucing up the inside and outside of your home and everything in between, this issue is packed with helpful tips and hints.

For help with your yard, read Smart Mom’s Guide, “Planting a Small Garden.” We also have Pam Molnar’s, “Satisfying the Urge to Purge, The Art of a Successful Garage Sale” as well as ideas by Dr. Dana Harris with “Tips to Spring into Emotional Wellness.” Because life is all about balance…Namaste. Lastly, be sure to jot down a few ideas from my feature, “Spring Fitness” for different ways to stay physically active during the warmer months.

As another season changes,  I leave you with these words from Emily Dickinson from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson. Happy spring!

A Light Exists in Spring

A Light exists in Spring

Not present on the Year

At any other period

When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad

On Solitary Fields

That Science cannot overtake

But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,

It shows the furthest Tree

Upon the furthest slope you know

It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step

Or Noons report away

Without the Formula of sound

It passes and we stay—

A quality of loss

Affecting our Content

As Trade had suddenly encroached

Upon a Sacrament

Until April,

Renee Williams
