Spring Is Here. Finally!

Spring can be viewed as uplifting freedom from the overbearing depression of winter. Goodbye frigid, dry cold air. Goodbye sneaky black ice. Adios frost bite. Chao white out and hello landscape of color. Hasta luego afternoon nights and hello extended daylight hours of Spring! After the amount of snow that burried many this winter, I do not want to see another deceptively pretty snow flake until next year!

This Spring my goal is to be more active and partake in activities with my suddenly overactive three year old. Perhaps picnics in the park, crack of dawn boat fishing and bike riding along trails. Write in my novel under a tree. Even visit local farms and pick fresh fruits and vegetables from the fields. There are so many simple yet wonderful things to do without having to take a 'vacation'. And let me not forget gardening. Gardening is my own personal therapuetic release. I love knowing that it was my hands, blood, tears and sweat that help nuture one of god's amazing creations. It instills a sense of pride and ownership that can't be mistaken for anything else.

Spring some how makes me want to enjoy life and love. Spring promotes possiblity and newness. From the glorious colors, to the tiniest creature, to the fresh air carrying the scent of the earth's awakening, Spring is a blessing.
Spring Fever...Can't you feel it...Can't you see it...Can't you smell it?

One day It will be true

Is it strange that when I'm in the bathroom I stare into the mirror pretending I'm on camera and answering questions about my currently unpublished book? My son often stares at me as if I'm a martian standing in his mother’s bathroom. Of course I do it only when my husband is asleep or not home. He would definitely call me crazy if he ever saw how in-depth my make believe interviews actually were.
I told my sister I was going to be a well-known author one day; and she of course laughs at me and gives her best sisterly advice that I seek immediate help.
I'm a Gemini. Period. We believe the impossible is always possible. It is what makes us so spontaneous and charming. I recall reading the characteristics of my birth sign and I damn near fell off my chair. All of it was true down to the getting bored easily part. My mother always said I was definitely a true Gemini, I guess she was right.
However, the down fall of being instilled with such a boundless insight on life turns out to be both a gift and a curse. Most times at the end of the day, I always ask how the hell did I get myself into this situation. Thankfully I married a Virgo who tends to keep me grounded and safe from reaping consequences of half cooked ideas.
Despite my sister’s advice, I have a strange feeling that I will leave this earth with two profound legacies, my handsome son as well as a published manuscript.
