Spring Walk in the Sun

Yesterday I went for a walk in the woods and it was wonderful! I can't describe how awesome it felt to walk in the quiet woods, the sun shining on everything, the birds singing, little tiny plants growing. I felt so alive and thankful for new life and for life itself. I really think because our winters are so long, spring is so much more precious. The feeling of being was so intense on that particular walk yesterday. Do you know what I mean?
Gestern bin ich nachmittags in der Sonne durch unseren Wald spaziert u es war wunderbar. Ich kann es schlecht beschreiben, aber es war einfach herrlich in dem stillen Wald zu laufen, die Sonne ueberall hinscheinen zu sehen, die Voegel zwitscherten, kleine Pflaenzchen wachsen zu sehen. Ich fuehlte mich so lebendig und war so dankbar fuer das neue Leben und fuer mein Leben ueberhaupt. Ich glaube, dass wir den Fruehling hier intensiver erleben u mehr schaetzen, weil wir so lange Winter haben. Aber gestern war dieses Fuehlen des "Fruehlingserwachen" besonders stark. Koennt ihr das nachvollziehen?

"Prom'nons-nous dans les bois
Pendant que le loup n'y est pas
Si le loup y 'était
Il nous mangerait,
Mais comm' il n'y est pas
Il nous mang'ra pas.
Loup y es-tu ?
Que fais-tu ?
Entends-tu ?"

"We walk in the woods
While the wolf is not
If the wolf there was
We eat,
But since there is no
We eat it.
Loup there are you?
What are you doing?
Hear you?"

I can definitely relate. We appreciate the spring all the more when the winters are long and cold. It looks like it was a glorious day there! Thanks for taking us along on your walk!

Ich kann es denk ich auch gut nachempfinden. Es ist so schön wenn die Natur wieder erwacht, es wärmer wird und länger hell ist.

My hubby and I went for a nice orchard walk last night after supper. I must do this more often!

We have bears coming out of hibernation now. They are so hungry. Watch where you walk in the woods. But they mostly try not to bother people!

Yes. I know what you mean. When the warm season is so short, it's so important to embrace it, feel it, breathe it, and become a part of it.

You are doing all of that. Good for you.
