I Dream of Green


Conversation between Dr. M and me:

Dr. M, looking at the snowy fields: Isn’t it beautiful?

Me : It’s a mattress.

Dr. M (confused): or a blanket…

Me: No, really – there’s a mattress on the side of the road.

Raucous laughter follows.

Still, I’m dreaming of spring…

  3. I can see your point. Plus green is much nicer than the brown we often see down in too-hot TX. You'll enjoy spring so much!! And I will envy you then.

  5. This reminds me of the commercials that Coke used to run: in the heat of summer they'd show pictures of sledding and snow. In winter they'd show pictures at the beach and lots of sunshine.

    If it's any encouragement, when I was on retreat a couple of weeks ago up in the mountains (such as they are) daffodil shoots were emerging. Spring is not just a figment of the imagination. It's on its way!

  10. Dear The Bug,
    I'm also ready for spring. All the packed snow has broken up and become dirty. It looks like slag from a carbon emissions mine. Ick.

    however, I hear we do get more soon . . .
