anticipation and appreciation...

                        her mind buzzed (at the first glimpse of spring)


she contemplated freedom and beauty


Spring is such an amazing season (autumn i'm not cheating on you i'm just saying...).  I love the bursts of green that are dotting the landscape, the bright yellow daffodils at the market and the fact that I just had my 1st asparagus sighting (asparagus is the queen of spring you know...).  All of the sights and sounds of spring awaken something deep inside of me that has been asleep for the past few months and brings the promise of hope, growth and transformation. And even though spring is fickle and likes to play games once I get that 1st glimpse of color it's infectious. I can see spring flirting with me in my sketch book and don't tell autumn but I think I'm in love....
