Happy Spring! A Roundup Of Stories For The Vernal Equinox

Here in California, we've been inundated with images of the "super bloom" and what's wrong with that? (super bloom eye candy here and also here). Sunday marked the vernal equinox and the offical beginning of spring. This day is also the start of Nowruz, or Persian New Year. And this year, it's Palm Sunday as well. Check this round up of spring celebration stories from our friends at NPR.

Get inspired by these award-winning green designs!

We already covered that green is Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year and since we're celebrating spring, I thought it would be fun to share this list of 23 award-winning design projects using the color green. There are a couple of surprises and lots of inspiration if you're into that sort of thing. For us here at 2Plus2, this qualifies as "FUN!"

 

One more shout out to nature and Rahawa and the transformative power of the Appalachian Trail

Rahawa Haile is an Eritrean-American writer living in Oakland who writes about hiking the Appalachian Trail alone as a black woman. “I can confirm that one does not walk 2,000 miles across the face of this country as a black woman without building up an incredible sense of self.” As Rahawa hikes, she leaves behind books by black authors for others to find at shelters. 

Rahawa writes: “Few nonessentials are carried on this trail, and when they are — an enormous childhood teddy bear, a father’s bulky camera — it means one thing: The weight of this item is worth considerably more than the weight of its absence. Everyone had something out here. The love I carried was books. Exceptional books. Books by black authors, their photos often the only black faces I would talk to for weeks. These were writers who had endured more than I’d ever been asked to, whose strength gave me strength in turn.”

There's also a podcast where she discusses the small beauties she found along the trail.
