Page of Staves: Spring Descends

Note: The URL for this blog has changed to

Spring descends upon central Florida.

It might sound strange to anyone unfamiliar with the true climate here, but there are indeed seasons. Our winter is much like a most pristine northern autumn, complete with frosted roofs and fallen leaves. Spring brings warmer temperatures (read: we finally head into the 80s during the day, and stay there) and increased humidity. New sorts of flowers begin to bloom, and cypress trees consider releasing their greens. I swear that the moment March started I felt the air change, become charged with the newness of an unfolding springtime.

Both the Buckland Romani app and the Ship of Fools gave me the Page of Staves this morning: the excitement of new opportunity, the thrill of developing new creative ideas. This Page from the Ship of Fools breathes "spring." It is utterly imbued with the essence of exploration and discovery, and I am fully in that mode.

My husband and I are planning a mini vacation that nearly coincides with our ten-year anniversary. New Orleans? Savannah? Some other place? I'm not sure. But just considering the options has me raring to go


  1. I see what you mean about the card being spring-like. It looks like he's blowing his horn to draw migrating birds and herald the warmer weather in :) Hope you have a marvelous time planning your getaway! ;)

    1. Thanks, Chloe! We went off to Savannah, Georgia, and it was wonderful! The weather was bright, sunny, dry, and a perfect mix of cool and warm. The city has such rich history (for the US) and reminded me a bit of Boston, with southern flair ;)
