Spring Fever






"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
.

~ Mark Twain

Such an up-and-down, back-and-forth month. The weather is beautiful today, but we all feel puny!

To smell that fresh moist earth! It needs to warm up a tad here first, though!

There's so much spring fever in the northern hemisphere air I'm having to feel it vicariously from my rainy late summer ...

I can hear the optimism in your voices
your creaky bones stretching
your restless souls ready to fly outdoors
the expectations in your hopes...

Twain's house is about a half hour from here, in Hartford. I can picture him sitting on the banks of the Connecticut River, contemplating those words.

I know it's been a long long long cold winter for you there. I am so glad things are finally starting to thaw.

Hello Peggy,

We have had a whole week of beautiful, bright, sunny weather! What a difference it makes!

Hey, Peggy! I've got a sororal gift for you in my blog's sidebar. Swing by when you get a minute. (I know, you're out walking and breathing in all that fresh air!)

Mr. Twain describes the feeling quite well, doesn't he??

Happy crazy spring to you, too!

I'd never seen a pic of Dr. Suess before. He look so happy. No wonder his books are all so great.

And there he is, hitting the nail on the head as only he could. Still as true today, as when he wrote the words.
