Bright pink fallen blossoms around my feet while walking around SE Burnside Street in Portland - I snapped some shots to capture this fleeting window of time we are leaving behind - when the blossoms begin to fall to make way for the unfurling of green leaves. This is where you might be finding yourself right now - you've seen too many things around you fall and fall apart.
Today is Orthodox Christian Easter - also known as Pascha - the Hebrew word for Passover. Orthodox Christianity waits for the Jewish Passover each year before we celebrate the resurrection. And I am always so in need of a new beginning by this time of the year - for a resurrection in my faith, and in my hope. Whenever I watch the falling of things - the falling apart of things - I need to remember that this is not an end in itself. This is a way of making room for things to come.
