On my way to work this morning, I drove by a vast open field. It was a golden-pink from the early morning sun and dotted with little dark clumps. After a quick double take I realized the clumps were Canadian geese, probably close to a hundred or so, roosting in the field as they waited for the sun to warm their wings. It was absolutely beautiful.
For some reason this week has been particularly long and stressful, and I seem to have developed a case of the winter blues. However, after seeing the geese this morning, I was reminded that spring is on her way. The northern birds are migrating back home.
Spring is coming.
