Awaken Your Spirit to Adventure...

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

~ John O'Donohue ~

Thank you for stopping by my Easter blog!

The colorful bushes, are in a beautiful yard that I garden in.
The pond is so relaxing that most days, it is not work, at all.
The bushes.... Azaleas and a nice dwarf Japanese Maple.

The mountains in northwest Virginia, about an hour away from where I live.
The Shenendoah National Park/ Blue Ridge Parkway

Enjoy your day! emoticon

I'm nervous. MSU is 3-0 against Virginia. But their record at playing at Madison stinks!
What do you think? I had the time of my life, senior year, when (with Majic Johnson and with Greg 'Special K' Kelser they won their first NCAA national championship!!!!!!!!!!!
