Spring
     
Welcome back to Inward Bound, our curated list of sites and activities. We hope to lift your spirits and provide good cheer
 
It’s April, and the flowers are starting to come up

 The name April is derived from the Latin word aperit which means to open. April is the month when flowers and trees begin to open.

The bright color palette made by daffodils, iris, tulips and azalea is especially welcome this year. The early spring flowers encourage us to look ahead --- to the bounty of summer --- and a long awaited return to some of our favorite activities.
FLOWERS PUT ON QUITE A SHOW.

Poetry
     
Welcome to this edition of Inward Bound. During this past year, we have all experienced a wide range of intense emotions -- to lasting effect. But throughout, we have tried to concentrate on the beautiful, the true and the timeless.
This issue is about the intense emotions --expressions, poetic and otherwise -- that help us experience the magic and beauty of life.
We start with the women (of course) and end with two glorious dances of exuberance and joy!
