winding down and up

Been feeling more inspired to make music than write, but not doing much of either. This extendo winter/fake out spring is sort of exhausting. Like, right down into the bones. The sun makes me want to bloom but the cold keeps me frosty and am sorta left feeling fragile. More sensitive to the cold, more sleepy, more impatient and sore. HOWEVER, spring is around the corner so just holding out, staying by the fire, snuggling. Watching the sun set at 8pm, starting seeds, ogling summer dresses, spending a few moments on the porch to hear the birds, opening the window a crack for 10 minutes of fresh, beautiful air.

march monday

Weeks matter now. They feel like flags of victory, each Friday sounding the horn. A slow steady trot on Monday becomes a canter mid-week, and a full running gallop by the end. Appearance groomed, hoops jumped, ribbons won and lost. Then a weekend to sit and wonder, in awe of the coming spring and so much more.
