Spring equinox is here and I feel ready to crawl out from under the covers and start creating. I just learned about the life cycle of the wooly bear caterpillar. During the cold winter months this fuzzy creature freezes, yet amazingly, does not die. Its little heart stops beating each winter for years until after more than a decade it is finally ready to thaw in spring and briefly become a moth. This winter felt a bit like that for me. I am ready to shake off that slow cold season. It is time to dive into the momentum of spring.
