Today was beautiful. It was one of those days that you feel like you have wasted if you didn't spend it outside doing something. You don't really have to be accomplishing something, just outside, breathing fresh air and getting sunshine on your skin. I just got home from a 4 mile walk where I conjured up this great feeling.
I am trying to not get fooled into thinking that the nice weather (Spring) is here to stay, this may just be a fluke week for us but I am going to enjoy it regardless. I have the windows open, incense burning, and good music playing on the stereo. It feels like spring in the Rogue Valley (where I grew up).
In a few months, it will be hot and humid (I don't really mind that either) and doing stuff outside will only really be fun if there is water involved. In a few weeks, when we are in the best part of Spring weather, the pine pollen will start to fall and all the windows will have to be shut again, but for today, and the next few days, I am just going to turn my face to the sun and enjoy it.
I remember when I went to college in So California that this is kind of what winter felt like. It was weird for me to be in short sleeve shirts in January or February and I always felt a little bit like I was getting away with something. A stolen Spring day....I am babbling...can't really convey my feelings but I am sure you get the drift.
