When does Spring Arrive?

The grocery store encourages me

After days of grey skies and fine snow, just seeing these beauties made me smile. Genius marketing. The colors and scents of these blossoms reminded me that there is more to life than trudging through January.


A lot of my footwear is Colombia, from everyday boots to trail runners that conquered the Camino de Santiago. I’ve had this venerable pair of boots for what feels like forever. During a Colombia sale I finally chose a new pair-not quite so Santa like but still pretty snazzy. Went to pick them up from the post office and decided to ditch these venerables right there in the recycling bin of the Shopping Centre. When memories become baggage it’s time to let go!

Tomorrow is St Bridget’s Day. Let her drag Spring in here by the frostbitten ear!
