Mothers of Our Creations

Taking a walk today in the Old Town section of Longmont, there were many flowers in bloom, including daffodils, lilacs and tulips, among others. There were bursts of bright yellow yarrow, sweet woodruff and a number of others. Broadleaf trees are starting to bud, there is a delicious floral fragrance in the air, and it finally feels like spring.

The mothering, nurturing aspect of the earth is now in full bloom, inspiring creativity and passion in those who indulge their sense in the burst of energy that is all around us now. Some people have children and Mother's Day means one thing to them.

However, there are many others who have chosen not to produce children and instead focus their creative energies on their careers, hobbies or other pursuits that feed their creative spirit. In a manner of speaking then, all women are mothers, by virtue of the nurturing and creative spirit that facilitate all types of creation in this world.
