what’s your favorite microseason?
i recently did an instagram live interview. i was telling the interviewer about my recent interest in the concept of 72 microseasons and how i am working on defining them for my bioregion. then he naturally asked me “what’s your favorite microseason?” ha! i hadn’t thought about that yet. i was too busy defining them to pick a favorite. i could tell him what my husband’s was: “white throated sparrows return”. but for myself, i hemmed and hawed and then finally punted. i still need to do an exhaustive look at all 72 microseasons of our great lakes bioregion, but right now i am thinking early-may, “apple blossoms burst in abundance”, will be very nearly at the top of the list. very possibly at the top. everything is sprouting, bursting, unfurling, and popping into life…,there is an abundance of vitality. do you feel it?
