I’ve been looking for signs that winter is losing strength and spring is gaining the upper hand. The thermometer would be too easy an indicator. I don’t count that. It’s almost as lame as looking at the calendar.
Of course, I realize the temperature is the real reason that the once-epic mountain of snow at the end of our driveway…
is now a shadow of its former self. I prefer to see it as the warmth of love loosening hate’s icy grip.
Still, I think the blooming things are the best signs that nature’s life force will tame the great beast of winter.
And besides, they smell nice, too.
Have fun springing forward.
