This time of year always find me longing. An intense desire for springtime rumbles around inside me. Visions of the beach call to me. I envision wiggling my bare feet around in the warm sand. Short sleeve clothes say, “Wear me!”

The in-between days make me impatient. Is it springtime or is it not?

Sunshine beams into my windows and says, “Yes, it’s spring!” I check the weather forecast. 57 degrees. I put on my open toe shoes and meet the day. Later I wonder what delusion I was under. My toes are like icebergs and I wish I’d made a more realistic decision based on the current temperature of 42.
