“It was a perfect spring afternoon, and the air was filled with vague, roving scents as if the earth exhaled the sweetness of hidden flowers.”
Ellen Glasgow

Beauty Of Spring
By Maya

In the welcoming season of Spring, I always feel something very special. Like a whisper of some magic coming…
So I think…let’s be surprised what this year shall bring, besides all those beautiful signs that spring always delivers…

The warmth of the sun and erratic singing of birds, the smell of flowers and new brightly green grass, so different smell in a woods, damp and cool, where pines are showing their peeking shoots, but still saying goodbye to the last remnants of winter.
 Days are longer and it seems as though life itself has become longer too.

Outdoor activities will soon be in a full swing, even my daily walks with my dog will be longer and I would adjust my own saying…

“In winter it takes me one hour to dress and have 5 minutes’ walk with my dog, in summer I can dress in 5 minutes and have a one-hour enjoyable walk.”

I love the month of May, the month of Love. I always wanted to have my birthday in May, until I realized that I was most likely “made” in May, being born in February, so I came to peace with it… 😉

Either way, there is one thing that puts a dark shade on this Spring for me.
March is a rather special anniversary for me. My husband and I arrived in this country in March as political refugees, escaping from the communists’ government. It was always a quite happy realization of reminding myself how glad I was to be in a free country. But this year all is different.
Because I also know it is different for all like me, for thousands of emigrants who came close to freedom often under very dangerous circumstances, sometimes close to losing their lives. And now here are those who push just the same we escaped from to this country…same that took lives from millions and destroyed the way of life for the rest. How very terrifying this is that all those who voted and still are in favor of this are lost souls in total ignorance.

I did not realize how very alive this all is still in me…I’ve lost completely my will to write more right now…such as never happened before when I started writing…well, I revealed a lot about all that in my six parts series
“The Truth- Living Under Communists”,  including prologue   “The Border”  (1st part)

I cannot request that you should read it, although it could open your eyes more, explain a lot and supply you with a piece of history as it really was… but I can ask you…please read it…
If not for your sake, then for the sake of your children and grandchildren…
Also, I’d like to thank you for it with many thousands of others who nowadays are as scared as I am…
Best regards,
Maya
