This Season is Getting to Me

I really love Easter.  And I love the promise of spring and renewal (both in season and in life).  Feeling the beauty of it all big time here in Brooklyn.  Still so amazed to feel anything at all.  Honestly, it’s still feels so new to me.  I just still can’t believe that I know firsthand that renewal IS possible and real.  And now, one of the greatest gifts of my life is hearing from all of you – and seeing again and again the potential we ALL have.  I think I might have the best gig EVER.  I mean, I get to hear about miracles happening every day.  They are as miraculous to me as the blossoms that will burst here in Brooklyn any day now.

I guess I’m just feeling a lot of love for you all tonight.  I am cancelling my other planned post for the moment.  I just wanted to say thank you.  Thanks for letting me in on your lives.  Thanks for being so awesome – I can feel your goodness and love from afar.  Thanks for joining in on making this world a better place.  I hope you all have a FANTASTIC week.

Much love from Brooklyn,

    P.S. Mara- I recently have gone gluten & dairy free too. I have celiac disease and I think I am also lactose intolerant. Since cutting both of those things out, I feel amazing!! I mean really great! It's crazy. I ahve really loved reading and re-reading your posts on going non-dairy and gluten free. Keep them coming! We need to share all the knowledge that we can with each other.

    Mara, I've enjoyed your blog so much! Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us. I truly believe that living with intentionality allows each of us to have the life we want; it's not about getting everything we think we deserve. Your intentionality about being happy is a real inspiration.

    Hi Mara,

    Just wanted to drop a quick note to say I feel so very lucky to have stumbled across your blog, especially during this difficult time in my life, because you are a living testament that there is in fact life and love after divorce. Actually, you've inspired me so much so that I decided to dedicate my latest post to you. I hope you don't mind. I would love to hear your feedback as I'm new to this whole blogging thing!

    I need to stop being a lurker since I regularly send out your blog to my friends and I read all of your postings. Thanks for posting the gorgeous spring art and for the link to NY spring experiences. Great (!) list. Thanks for a terrific blog.
