Arrival of the Birds and Spring

Not to make you jealous or anything, but spring has arrived here, with his flowery hat and a big smile. Here ducklings, some sun for you. At first , it was just sunlight that woke you up. But then gradually it started becoming really warm. It started becoming spring. The world somehow seemed brighter at moments, and there is this sense of possibilities that spring carries with him. Though these possibilities never really turn out to be true, at least you get that feeling.
The biggest problem with spring is that I don’t want to be locked up inside. As soon as I see the sun from behind a window, something in me starts screaming GET OUT GET OUT THERE’S SUN. I haven’t had a productive week. I spent quite some time outside a cafe, embraced by sun beams, discovering a new beer to add to my list of Favourite Beers. Despite all the work I have to do, I have been just enjoying what we get. It could soon be over – last year it started snowing again at the end of March. While this year that seems unlikely, you just never know.
Next to that you should always try to enjoy what you get. A few days ago I heard the news that one of the people I went to high school with, who’s as old as me, has gotten cancer again, for the second time in about a year. It doesn’t look good. It looks really bad actually. I don’t know this guy all too well, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s really confronting to hear this kind of news. Therefore I completely forgive myself or not doing anything this week. It’s the worst thing to say these days, but you only live once is true after all.

So I’m just trying to take what I can get, try to have fun while it lasts, try to get more vitamin D and beer. Healthiest of healthy things. Next to that there’s other great news. This weekend I have a dance show – I like! As we always have dance shows when the weather’s nice, I associate sunlight and warmth with nights spent at the theatre. I’m really looking forward to being on stage again. And even better, we’ve got great music to dance to. I believe this is the closest to perfection one can get: spring, sitting outside a cafe with beer, having a dance show with very beautiful music.

Hell yeah.

    I am sorry about your friend’s prognosis.

    Spring is halfway here today, but it may snow next week. I may finally be used to this.

    Enjoy your weather and time on stage 🙂

    • Oh dear, I hope that you love snow, or otherwise that there will be no snow at all!

      I will, I am already enjoying a whole lot :D.

  2. So sorry to hear about your friend.

    Spring is my favourite season. Vit D, beer and dancing – sounds fucking awesome. Carpe diem baby!

  3. Getting cancer twice is horrendous.

    The weather keeps chopping and changing from cold to warm, it’s rather disconcerting.

    Beers and cafes help to make things better though.

    • And he’s only 19… So sad.

      That’s not nice! Lucky us to have this sunny weather all the time practically. But beer and cafes really make everything better :).

  4. I am so sorry to hear about the C issue 😦 It’s a horrid, horrid thing.
    I hope the warm thought about spring help you think about positivity…

  5. Live in the moment. Love it.

  6. Ah, but do you dance with your beer at the cafe?
    (Or is that just me?) 😉

    Sounds like you’re enjoying your spring to the fullest. Hope you send it as extra screw you to your acquaintance’s cancer. You’re absolutely right – it’s a great reminder to enjoy the moments you can.

    I’m incredibly jealous, but glad someone I know gets to savor spring!
    (I’ll be living vicariously through you til ours comes.)

    Have fun dancing!!!

    • Well, I should try that, shouldn’t I? 😉
      As you say, it’s a screw you to everything that might take away the fun. We need that kind of things to keep it all going.

      You’ll get your spring, eventually! Keep hoping!

  7. The Sun is out! Hooray! Boing boing
