The Light Has Changed

I swear to God, it may still be February, but I looked out this morning and the light was different. More yellow. I looked up to check, and the sky was a richer, thicker blue. A spring sky. Spring light. Also, the first sound I heard this morning was a slower bird cry, a different bird cry than the winter birds. But it is the different light that convinces me. There is always a moment towards the end of winter when I just know there has been that magical shift into spring. Even if we get more cold, more snow, the light has changed. Its back is broken, winter is now a limping, crawling beast, clawing at us all but nearly dead, no longer a threat.


I dunno Susan, that frost on my car looks pretty much the same as it did in January 🙂

But I’m with you. The days are slowly, inexorably getting longer.
February is the shortest month, but it sure takes forever to be over!

Come’on spring!
