Primaveral is something of the ideal spring word since it relates to all that make-up the early spring days. From the very first hints of new, green growth, to the earliest blossoms (like the cherry or peach), to the first soft hints of warmth in a gentle breeze or ray of sun – all of that is primaveral.
There may be the remnants of snow, but the green shoots and sweet buds are welcome primaveral delights!
This year the primaveral joys are being celebrated mostly from my own yard and windows and on-line videos, but they are still incredibly welcomed and enjoyed by me. I hope that everyone is able to find small ways to welcome spring, even though so many of us are confined to our homes and practicing distance socializing to help quell the rapid spread of Covid. Even just stepping out of your door for a few minutes, or opening a window to feel the air and notice the sky can help connect you to the seasonal shift. There is hope, dóchas, in the primaveral air and the promise that things will even out and be okay once more. We’ve got this and we’ll rise through it together.
Namaste ~ Ella
