The time of year were winter thaws and new plans are made. This time last year we were recovering Polly’s hip and hoping that climbing would be pain free. This year we’re hoping the same thing about her ankle. So even as the spring snows come here and keep the skis out of storage for a few months longer, the green sprouts and flower buds in our garden remind us that warmth and summer are coming. I hope adventures like climbing in mountains with Polly work out this year, through the year all the way to and through next winter and beyond. Recoveries are slow and tedious, much like impatiently waiting for a season to change.
Here’s to this season of recovery setting and a new spring beginning for what may come.
