This too Shall Pass

I've always enjoyed the multitude of metaphors that directly connect nature with emotion. Previously, I wrote about the Calmness in the Storm as it pertains to the emotional dichotomy of the fear during difficulties with the calmness that occurs during times of reflection.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

A common saying is April Showers Bring May Flowers and boy did April bring some rainy days. I cried a lot more than normal this month.
