May Showers

Just as we discussed last month, spring is often a time of change, and change can bring up emotions that are difficult for us to process.

Why is it that we start cleaning in the spring? It’s tradition in many cultures, almost like it is hard-wired into us, to welcome in a new season and invigorate our surroundings.
