We've been watching this robin in action for the past two weeks. She built her nest atop our garage lights, beneath the overhang. She made sure it was the right location, painstakingly carried each piece to build her foundation, and hoped against hope that it made the safest home for her eggs.
Soon we'll hear her babies chirping and watch mama bird feed them worms while squawking at any intruders. And before long the baby birds will be strong enough they'll fly off on their own.
Despite my city having the rainiest season on record (ugh), SPRING will always represent NEW BEGINNINGS and CLEANING HOUSE to me. Personally, it means sweeping out the negative energy in my life, whether it be things or people. Reassessing where and how I spend my time. Joining or quitting activities and evaluating how to feel more healthy.
For my characters, it means having them evaluate, change and grow in my novels. As a reader, I appreciate that growth too.
Do you or your characters "clean house"?
