A New Leaf & Becoming

A New Leaf Today is the first day of Spring 2021. So much has happened since last spring. Our world is changing, “turning over new leaves”. New leadership bringing welcomed changes, new healings with vaccines, new light as spring begins. But there is still much darkness with 2.8 million Covid deaths, new Covid strains, inequality, […]
