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

Spring fever. I have always had a “feeling”  as Winter leaves and Spring approaches.  I suppose it is a feeling of hope, renewal, joy, a freshness of heart. I, like Mark Twain, cannot pin point it, but it’s there.  Just a feeling…..and a desire.  Maybe the desire is for renewal, for change, for something happy after the dark days of winter.  The warm sun on my face, the flowers everywhere I look, the vibrant green grass, people around the neighborhood making appearances after being inside all winter, the buds on the trees – all things that make me smile.  Perhaps that is the ache Twain speaks of – the ultimate desire for beauty, for happy people, for friends all around, for fresh smiles.

The blooms on the pear tree made me smile today.  I love the white flowers and the way they invite one to step up close and breath them in.
