Spring

It is February--not nearly Spring. There is still some snow on the ground. However, it's been in the 40's the past few days and already something feels different. It's strange--I had been so content with this winter and convinced myself that I liked winter, but when I stepped outside and breathed that first day's 45-degree air, saw the light through the trees no longer obscured by snow, and heard birds singing, I realized that I love spring.
I know that it's not really the only time for new beginnings. I know this. And I know that in a way, it's sad because it shows how life is moving when I am not.
And yet, today, anything feels possible.
