Oh and hasn't it been so long in coming! How exciting! I know I couldn't be happier to see you Spring. Even if you are sloppy and messy, even if you snow. Just promise me to be mostly warmer, mostly lighter, and all that hope.
It does give me a lot of hope, Spring. Everything just feels lighter, like a load is lifted as the days change. I am really excited about music, I am really excited about our travel plans this Spring and Summer, and about our album release. It might be a quite an adventure year this one. And for some reason, the changing season makes it all seem real like it is really going to happen.
I wonder if anything is actually poking out of the ground yet for Spring. That might be asking a bit much. But the melt is going really well so far, I can see the roads are clear now and definite receding lines of snow everywhere else. And lots of melt water. Pretty soon we are going to find all that gross stuff under the snow that has been buried all winter. You know, like garbage, forgotten toys, dog poop, maybe a sock. Why one sock? It always kills me. How does anyone leave behind one of their socks in winter. How does that even happen? It perplexes me every time I see that. My brain can't figure out the sequence of events that lead to someone deciding in -20 weather (or whatever horrible winter weather it was deposited in), that one of their socks is just too much and it has to go right then. Sit on the curb, go ahead, take off your boot, expose your flesh to the freezing cold and remove that sock and just be done with it. Now that's better? How possible?
Even if I argue that maybe someone was carrying laundry and dropped a sock, it just happens too much for that. Ha! Maybe this is real evidence of the sock escape network! All the missing socks actually have some underground organization. Maybe some of them don't quite make their checkpoints and end up frozen under the snow only to be discovered in Spring. Now that makes sense. Finally.
Happy hump day
