For a while now, every time I saw my banner I thought "Thank goodness there is no more snow!". Although a new banner was an obvious must, finding the time and inspiration to come up with a photo is a bit tricky.
Thankfully, today Andrew and I had the time to head on downtown for some coffee at JustUs! My original plan was to try to find pretty purple crocuses in the Public Gardens and take some pictures there. I wasn't 100% sure how we'd be able to "guerrilla Yoga" our way through it, since as you can see there are pretty strict rules for behaviour in the Halifax Public Gardens. I really don't see the point of having such a beautiful area if you can't enjoy it.
In any case, it was a moot point, since we got there and the gates were closed. Boo! So, right on the corner of Spring Garden and South Park (a pretty busy Haligonian street corner) I hopped up onto the ledge and tried a few postures. It was a bit sketchy, as it was windy and after going out last night my balance isn't the greatest.
Ultimately, I like our final choice. Sitting in half lotus, hands at heart center, quietly observing the beautiful gardens. Kinda like what living in a city can feel like sometimes, wishing for more Nature while being surrounded by concrete, only experiencing our Earth from artificially constructed whims of the city's bureaucratic schedule.
Within this I found a bit of peace, and let go my expectations of having a pretty flower photo, of exploring the Public Gardens with Andrew and enjoyed the moment.
Many Blessings and Happy Spring!
