Spring Green, A Drug for the Soul

Wonderful things can happen on the way to the dump! Feeling tired and somewhat stressed from a week of caregiving to my mom and step-father, I looked up from the road to see a swath of brilliant green set against a blue background. I was looking at a field of winter wheat on a sunny day. What a blessing! My spirits immediately lifted and soared. 

The combination of bright light, the intense green of new growth of the wheat and a blue sky had more effect on my energy and my spirits than any drug. We really don’t have to look far to feel a rush, especially during the spring.
