In and Out

The sun and clouds are alternating their presence in our days, 
in and out, as we work our way closer to spring.
These changes often happen within hours --
the morning is cloud-covered, bringing snow showers
that coat the ground with a thin glaze of white.
The breeze pushes out the overcast, dragging the bright
sun just behind. Everything is bathed in the sun's light,
then, more clouds and a bit more snow.
It's a bit like the instructions on a shampoo bottle:
"Wash. Rinse. Repeat." cleansing away the winter 
doldrums as preparation for the renewal 
and promise of spring.

And while I was huddled on my couch, I listened to a couple
musicians I hadn't heard much about.

As ever, you observe things that would pass most people by, Speedway. I like the idea of late winter snow showers rinsing the drear away in preparation for spring.

Ah, thank you, Dive. It's amazing the little bits that come out of my mind when I press the keys to make the letters.
It's not magic, but it seems coherent at times. :-)
