Musings of a retired English teacher, former student of the sixties and overall sage ( never mind the parsley, rosemary, or thyme)

Ever wonder why we look forward to springtime. I wonder if it is renewal, warmth, or finally getting rid of the snow and cold. I find the warmth an invigoration that i miss since I suffer seasonally adjustment disorder. Longer days and shorter night and the better driving conditions. It makes visiting my friends a lot better. I like the yard work and the smell of new growth and the spring cleanup when you can get rid of all sorts of shit. Fishing and sitting by the dock of the bay are two most relaxing pasttimes. I don't care if I catch a fish or not. The idyll of spring rejuvenates my being.
