It has long been my tradition to attack the first day of spring with appropriate music and an interpretive dance alla Isadora Duncan.
Since I don't feel like dancing (I can hear your sighs of relief), I'll subject you to music.
Rustle of Spring by Christian Sinding seems an apt way to welcome the springtime season. Sinding (1856 -1941) was a Norwegian composer.
I would imagine that this composition depicts breezes rustling through treetops in restless breaths.
This particular video is a shoddy rehearsal tape that I made in Texas when I was out of practice and way past my prime.
Most of you have already seen this, but just be polite and pretend you haven't.
I should at least get kudos for successfully turning the pages....
If you don't like my music (which is a complete impossibility), you can marvel at the photos I took recently.
I took these pics from the back porch last Thursday, just after the sun came up. It was a frigid 14 degrees (Fahrenheit), very breezy, with a deep blue sky.
Actually, it's still too damn cold to be the first day of spring - - and I should probably be dancing simply to ward off a frostbite.
Warmer weather is predicted soon, but I won't hold my breath.
Keep cozy and enjoy the spring equinox.
