Technically,we’re two days away from the official vernal equinox here in the northern hemisphere, but almost everyone I know is just lunging towards spring and all that comes with it: shedding layers of wool and silk, eating asparagus and baby peas (and Cadbury Creme Eggs!), maybe feeling a bit randier than usual…ahem. Maybe it’s just that the extra sunlight is perking up my SAD self, but I’m feeling pretty fat-n-sassy these days.
I’ve also noticed that my students are feverish: louder, easily distracted. I can’t really blame them; I would rather be relaxing in the sun than giving exams, too.
All this to say, thank maude for warmer, brighter weather. And thank maude for flip flops! I really don’t like wearing proper shoes, so when I can finally just slip on the ‘flops to run errands, it is a Good Day. Sunshine and flip flops; that’s what it’s all about. (And Cadbury Creme Eggs!)
So, today’s FFT is: what is it about Spring that you most look forward to? And is your weather as insanely beautiful as Brooklyn’s promises to be? (Blue skies and 70 degrees F–that’s a delightful 21C!)
And for our antipodean readers, it’s almost fall (my absolute favorite season)! What are you looking forward to about the coming months?
