After an icy start in St. Louis to 2022, spring is in the air, and many things seem to be rebounding after a trying two years. With some of my favorite conferences being held in-person and with less than a month until my first in-person author event since before the pandemic, that sense of excitement I experienced as a kid a few weeks before Christmas is bubbling up.
For many of us, stepping back in comes with a touch of trepidation, while others are diving in headfirst. This week, a dear friend gifted me with the Rose of Jericho, an ancient desert plant that’s symbolic of the resurrection, renewal, and transformation. This remarkable plant is well accustomed to feast or famine and can dry up and remain dormant for years before being revived in water. As humans on this bustling planet living through a pandemic, I suspect we can all learn something from this remarkable plant as we return to a new normal, weathering both the rain storms and the long quiet between them.
If you live in Florida, or will be traveling there, please join me and the lovely Mara Wells for a “Doggone Romantic Evening” on Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30 PM EST. We’ll be at Kay Rico Coffee in Hollywood, Florida, and I’d love the opportunity to connect with you.
