A New Spring

I walked outside without a jacket yesterday just after an afternoon rain shower. The air felt warm and fresh. A lovely breeze ruffled my hair. I breathed deeply and smelled the fresh earth and the delightful scent of a cleansing rain. I saw buds on the trees and tiny shoots of green pushing up through last year's beds of cedar bark mulch.

Happy New Year!

Of course, on January 1st, it's supposed to be in the upper 20's with a sheet of ice covering everything, turning the entire metro area into an beautifully silent ice castle.
