April Showers

March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb, and in between, it was the muddiest march of lions and lambs i have ever seen.

Now the mud is draining down INTO the ground instead of on TOP of the earth (because the frost is nearly out of the ground).

The proverbial April showers have begun! Well, 2 of these so far have been snow showers, but rain, rain, rain, is the forecast. My abbreviated Accuweather icon even shows a sun with raindrops coming out of it. (???)

Whatever weather happens, we are at the mercy of the elements--air, water, earth, and heat (or lack thereof). Actually, we are nothing more than a combination of elements ourselves.
The wind blows; we breathe.
The rain falls; we urinate.
Water flows; our blood circulates.
Earth supports us; our material bodies support Awareness.
Heat and cold come and go; our warm bodies compost vegetable matter.
Soon enough, our cold bodies will return to earth.
