shovelling snow here. My friends in Texas and France
were painting green trees and talking about flowers,
and they might as well have been on a different planet.
All the while I read their blogs as if they were promises.
Spring will come to Toronto, spring will come.
And when it does it's so dazzling, that it's like what
Edward B. Gordon in Berlin complained of in early
spring -- the light was almost too much. But the
most amazing thing is the colour -- everywhere.
Red and yellow tulips popping up out of floods of
forget me knots, flowering trees in white and pink
and yellow. A dazzling green on the lawns, and
people in bright coloured T-shirts and shorts
strolling around like this is normal. So it is.
I can safely take the snow tires off next week.
Have a wow-so-it's-really-happening day!
