Happy spring!


Happy springtime, friends! I would love to hear from you this spring & where you are at/any special things to share!! ~~~ Feel freeness to send a magical paper airplane or note to rachelawes@gmail.com!


& here is my special spring sharing with you:


Green, Green is My Sister's House by Mary Oliver


Don't you dare climb that tree

or even try, they said, or you will be

sent way to the hospital of the

very foolish, if not the other one.

And I suppose, considering my age,

it was fair advice.


But the tree is a sister to me, she

lives alone in a green cottage

high in the air and I know what

would happen, she'd clap her green hands,

she'd shake her green hair, she'd

welcome me. Truly.


I try to be good but sometimes

a person just has to break out and

act like the wild and springy thing

one used to be. It's impossible not

to remember wild and not want to go back. So


if someday you can't find me you might

look into that tree or - of course

it's possible - under it.


((With all my green heart, xox Rachel))
