The holiday season is nearing its close. All friends and family have left. We have no journeys or visits planned for at least a few days. Snow is falling, adding a bit more to the couple of inches that have already arrived in this new year. Outside it’s 17° F/-8° C, and while 2 cats actually did go outside they did not linger long before rushing back into the house and locating their favorite heat registers. It seems natural, then, to be thinking about spring.
Soon we will see these
where currently we see only white and brown. The new year is here, and its spring must be approaching.
