You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

It’s amazing the things you can miss when they may be on the brink of leaving.  As we’re beginning the move into Spring I almost miss the quiet of winter with its hushed blanket of snow covering the ground.  Its virginal apparition promising us that life will soon begin anew with warmer temperatures and thawing ground.  When in reality the frigid temperatures, slushy, black snow and terminally filthy cars slam my clouded vision back into focus.  Aside from the brief moments of absolute beauty I am not even remotely a fan of winter.  There is a magic that coats the earth and stifles its murmur into a peace that is inexplicable unless you’ve stood on your driveway, ankle-deep in the fluffy stuff and been able to hear your neighbor across the street without shouting.   And nature has a way of erasing the unpleasantness of every season leaving us with an idealized notion of what is to come. So I bid winter adieu and welcome Spring with open arms…until I’m so sick of the rain and mud I turn my thoughts to the ideal summer…without the heat and humidity…..
