It has been a long, cold winter here in the
American Midwest. I have been cocooned
in my studio, hibernating from the blahs of
winter... In two months from today we will be
hiking up to castles along the Rhine, walking
through the tulip fields in the Netherlands
and strolling along the cobblestones in Paris.
And I need to get ready.
I set today as the day I would start my training
for our European journey, I thought, it will be
March, certainly the weather will have improved.
I was wrong, it was grey and cold and snowing.
Not a great day to leave the warm nest of my
home and venture out to the woods.
But I did it anyway and feel better for doing so.
At least, I am fairly certain that by the time I
leave for my European adventure it will be
Spring ~ and it can't come a moment too soon
as far as I am concerned.
