Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.
-Victor Hugo, Marilyn F., Lincoln NE

An optimist is the human personification of spring.
-Susan J. Bissonette , Marilyn F., Lincoln NE


Life pulsates with so many
pregnant possibilities for good
that it should not be wasted.

Every moment of each day counts.
Out best resource is to live life
with intensity and exhilaration:
in thought, experience, action, and deed.
-Paul Kurtz, submitted by Kate S., North St. Paul MN


I hope many of you are experiencing some semblance of spring–here in Madison we received a fresh batch of SNOW to help usher in the season! Despite the cold stuff on the ground, one of the ways that I know spring has been inching closer is the sound of birds! My morning walks to the gym have been increasingly punctuated with the happy tweeterings of those who eagerly sense the arrival of longer days and (barely!) warmer weather.

Perhaps we need to practice chirping too, so I have a RIPPLES CHIRPING CHALLENGE and the winner will get a big pile of inspirational goodies!!

I dare you to post a question or comment in the “Streams of Consciousness” section of our community website, and I urge EVERYONE to read and reply! Of the topics that are initiated this week, the one that has the most replies by Friday will be declared the “loudest” and its author will receive some treats.

So, put your creative cap on, imagine 13,000 fellow Ripplers lining up to talk……and ask them a question or make a provocative statement (use good judgement of course, and be sure to read posting guidelines if you’ve never posted before.
