I can finally see why weather is such a hot topic of conversation. After the dreary winter (the joys of experiencing my first snow and building my first snowman notwithstanding) today was the first real day of spring here. It was a lovely day. I went out for a walk and saw gardens in bloom, parents playing outside with little kids, hot guys running in banians, general cheer all over the place. Such a stark contrast from the depressing days of rain and cold and having to wear three layers before stepping out. I ambled around aimlessly, feeling uplifted about nothing in particular and everything in general. Singing to myself. Enjoying the brisk air. A distinct difference from my mood in the winter, when it was so easy to get bluesy and depressed.
I saw a little kid help his mom clean their car. Cute, I thought, smiling to myself. Such fun to walk around without a care..I thought. As I made my way home, still smiling to myself, I saw the large traffic lines and surly drivers faces. My smile turned into a grin. Such fun to walk around without a car..... :p
And as I write this post, I can hear the rain beating down. :)
