Ah, spring. Our Oppressive Snow Lords have melted, leaving us with an unfettered optimism and enthusiasm for the great Day Star that will last until it gets “too hot” and we all start complaining about sunscreen getting in our eyes and sitting in our stuffy offices. Then we’ll start to get nostalgic about hot chocolate and sitting by the roaring fire with a book. It’s the human condition, I think, to never be completely happy with what you have. I’m a little jealous of the mighty lizard people—all they need is a hot rock and a couple of bugs and they’re good to go.
What was I saying? Oh, yes, spring! The flowers are blooming, I’m taking two different kinds of allergy medicine, and I’m ready for some whimsy! Spring is a great time for some Necessary Whimsy, because it’s a time of renewal and possibility. It’s hard to not feel a little joy while listening to the birds’ tweet and watching the flowers bloom, right?
