And just like that, the world turned green and Spring arrived. Thank you, March, for the joy of friends, the love of family and an abundance of little fat birds–both in the studio and all around Bickley’s Pond!
But still there is a little more to the story. My sweet Aunt Nancy—mother to those three girl cousins I so adore—loves mockingbirds even more than I. She came for a visit just this week and we didn’t even know to go check on the front yard nest.
And so this is for you, Aunt Nancy, a little love note from our pond’s newest baby (and me). It is filled with the goodness your gentle spirit brings to every life you touch: love, and light, and immense grace—grace that is truly beyond measure.
