I want Spring.
I want warm air and the smell of damp earth.
I want sunshine.
I want a crazy road trip...driving fast under a huge prairie sky, no particular destination.
I want to see things sprout and grow, my toes in green grass, my hands in dirt.
I want to not be cold (so tired of being cold).
I want to burn my old black winter jacket and heavy boots.
I want to go for a long walk, without shivering, or slipping on the ice, or numb fingers and a runny nose.
I want to stop to investigate flowers and leaves, and find little rusted bits to make into art.
I want to open the windows of my house.
I want to take canvases outside and paint in the sunshine.
I want picnics.
I want green, in every conceivable tint & shade.
And did I mention sunshine? More than once?
Grey sky again today, and I just can't seem to get fully warm. But it is coming, just around the corner. Spring will be here soon.
