We’ve been blown into April at Four Seasons at Elm Tree, Mount Joy!
Early Easter and Passover are celebrated, nonetheless. Rains have brought buds and flowers, so neighbors are returning from the southern warmth. Golf and Pickle Ball have restarted, and many of us continue to meet w/masks and distancing for meetings in the clubhouse, playing cards and exercising there, or while walking our dogs with friends, and often helping each other with rides and updated information.
Typically, houses are on the market again, with a few available here, rarely for long, ready for newcomers to our summer pool opening, food truck visits, clubhouse activities and volunteering opportunities. While we have no yard work here, we might spring clean, power wash, clear garages, basements and attic rooms; we also are keenly aware of our recycling even more so during Earth Month. Zero waste efforts might have us buying in bulk to share, refilling wherever possible, using paper, metal or glass, not plastic, and lessening use of all disposables. Trash is an affirming badge of affluence, but not a sign of thoughtful progress. Jugaad, in India, means fixing rather than buying, being innovative!
Love of life, biophilia, has been promoted through more enjoyment of nature, especially plants and animals. Spring sounds from bird calls to running creeks, views as we walk local paths, panoramic horizons of farm fields, all mentally calm and help us destress well. The human brain craves greenery. Vegetables have been popular during this pandemic, so plant something new to enjoy indoors, as well as by the patio!
