Today is February 29!
We won't see another one for 4 years!
Let's enjoy the coming spring today.
Everything is blooming most recklessly;
if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking
into the heart of the night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke
It's spring fever.
That is what the name of it is.
And when you've got it, you want
- oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache,
you want it so!
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
Autumn arrives in early morning,
but spring at the close of a winter day.
