I think February is always just one of those months that you're ready to put behind you. As a friend recently remarked, what ever happens in February? Nothing much but snow, cold weather, and short dark days. I've a hankering for spring. I want to plant seeds and bulbs, and see the shoots of flowering things push through the softened earth. I want the reawakening of life and loveliness, and that spring rush of energy to recall my appreciation of life. It's just around the corner. . . .I can feel it. . .
