Spring is a time of new life. Both Easter and Passover are celebrations of that.
These days the exuberant, lush new life of spring feels a bit awkward. We are living under an unseen, often deadly, cloud, but the sun is shining. We are feeling threatened and uncertain, yet the trees are leafing out, and spring flowers are blooming, including the blossoms of fruit trees, promising a harvest to come, just like usual.
The challenge of this spring is to be patient and careful, and also to appreciate the beauty. Stay safe, but be happy also.
