Morning has broken...

Go on hands up - who has got an image and an audio loop of Cat Stevens playing in their head right now?

Anyway - I opened the front door this morning and was greeted by... blue sky.  Whilst to the west there were threatening rain heavy lead grey clouds to the east it was a pale blue sky with golden pink on the horizon and on a few lighter whiter clouds in that direction.  Birds were chirping away on in the case of the ring collared Doves coo coo ing at each other.  The last little piles of snow are still in some of the local gardens from the piles we had about 10 days back but this was the first day since Autumn I remember leaving my house for the walk to the station in daylight.  Spring will soon be here it seems and the cycle of life in a year rejuvenated again.  If the doom mongers and catastrophe predictors are right we'll never see the like again as the long predicted end of the world will hit us.  You know I can't help feeling that they are wrong, as ever...

  1. There was a red sky over Lancaster last night, and it's a beautiful morning here. All my bedding is in the washing machine and I'm looking forward to seeing it on the line in an hour or so. I find looking at washing on a line remarkably soothing and domestic and just *right*.

  2. For once, the Isle of Man has had the best weather in the entire UK, this past week (and I really must stop tempting fate..)! It's like a spring day outside - I'm off to give the mutt a run on the beach!

  3. What? Blue sky... I didn't think that was possible over there.

  4. I've thought spring feels on its way the past few mornings...something about the way the light hits or the sound of the birds chirping away. I remember what you said awhile back about Jan/Feb being tough times in sobriety, and I certainly felt that for awhile. I know it's too early to get spring fever, but still it's nice to feel that sense of hope of things ahead.
