Carpe diem!



The birds are going haywire outside this morning, singing their tiny bird hearts out to the world. Sweet! My eyes are itchy and my nose is twitchy which means the trees are stirring. It's an early spring in Washington DC following the long non-winter.

I opened a big box of Claritin yesterday, and will buy new bottles of my homeopathic remedy for spring allergies today, get some Chinese herbs when I see the Sufi acupuncturist next week. My body struggles with the huge, powerful uplifting energy of early spring, but I've learned how to deal with the struggle. I say, bring it on!

I've got the whole day off today, yay! I love working but I need my days off, too. A friend will be in town this afternoon, a friend who loves to walk around, take pictures, seek refreshment and look at art. It's going to be 70 F. today! What a day!

Meghan and I suffer in spring as well, though the last few years haven't been as bad for me. It's just so darn dry here.
Wishing you a wonderful day!

Oh no! Allergy season!

Say hi to Kim and enjoy your day. Wish I could join you both! (I feel bizarrely close now that I'm in Florida, even though that's not close at all. :) )

Yes, an early spring after a non-winter. Here too. But it seems sort of lackadaisical. Nothing seems to have burst forth but rather creeped in.
