The fields are half or more open now. I can see 1/2 the front yard in all its hat head glory. And, our turnaround in the driveway is almost useable, just 2′ of snow left on one half. When I hear see the Sandhills and hear that throaty, bell like gargle off theirs AND the Peepers, that will be like Neil Armstrongs’ “one great step” moment in the northern seasons. It’s so good to hear from those where spring is coming in strong now. I drove north a lot this week, some beautiful sunrises….one with a virtual Serengeti of deer in a corn stubble field backed by rolling hills and the occasional spruce silhouette.. The sun was a blazing pink-orange glow as it came up the horizon and backlit the scene like some nature documentary. I had a mental pause just to say how thankful I am to be living and breathing. That’s one of those many moments nature has given that I’d like to put on the buffet table of life when it comes to my end, and celebrate them with all those before and to come. That sure would be a nice way for it to work out. We’ll see:D!
