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.
