’tis the season to open up our big mouths

“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.”
– Joseph Campbell

A friend of mine took this picture of baby birds in her yard. With their mouths wide and tipped upward, I do believe they are saying that hearty yes. There’s a vulnerability and a sense of surety too. They know their hunger will be satiated, but they have to open their mouths first. I think we all have that opportunity all the time, to open ourselves to a unique adventure that will ultimately leave us satisfied, fulfilled. But first, as Campbell says, our mouths must open and say that hearty “yes.”

How does springtime inspire you?
