What a sunny day today! Personally, I do find it a bit too bright for my tastes or sensitivities, which is why I am wearing my tinted glasses – but nonetheless, it is still glorious feeling the warmth shining down.
And the plants! It’s as if a fine green carpet rose up through the deadened ground in the matter of just a week. Winter to spring spearheaded by the sharp edges of the tulip leaves breaking through the ground, leading the charge for the remainder of life stirring underfoot – ready to rise and greet the warmth as it rains down.
As you can possibly surmise, I am smitten with spring. If I were to put the seasons in order of my favorites, I would have a difficult time determining which I like more: spring or autumn. Opposites of one another, I enjoy them for that very reason; the greenery of life and rebirth on one hand – and a bright and fiery foliage death on the other. If it were not for the necessity and bountifullity of summer and the food which it produces, I would enjoy it if spring were to immediately follow autumn, which would likewise loop back to spring in a shorter, more joyous year.
Events in town have been somewhat quiet as of late. Thankfully, I have not had any encounters with persons possessing abilities or deal with any supernatural beings. This has given me time to catch up on my letter writing to friends and read a great many books. Although, now that I think of it, now that the snow is past us a season, I should spend my nights training again. I do not wish to be caught unawares or unprepared if a problem were to arise.
I’m off to inventory my supply of seeds so I can determine what I need to buy from Cutler’s this week. Knowing my garden will be soon growing is like knowing a field full of friends is coming to visit – which is a poor choice for an analogy as I do not eat my friends as I intend to eat the vegetables.
As a side note, the word I used above, “bountifullity,” is not a word according to my copy of Webster’s American Dictionary of the English Language. I should write to them and petition for its inclusion.
