Good-bye gray winter, time to be gone
When the alarm buzzed at 6:20 a.m. the other morning, I went down to prepare coffee and steel myself for the regular morning madness. As I drew the curtains, I was startled by an unusually bright morning light. Instead of eating breakfast in the accustomed wintery darkness, we sat warmed by the pinky, orange sun shooting rainbows of light onto the dining table. Although there was still snow on the ground in spots, it was clear that a seasonal change was underway.
