Spring is in the air….Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part.
I’m all for cuddle time during the cold winter storms, but what is up with all of these late winter storms? The time for hot cocoa with whipped cream and small candy canes saved over from Christmas time as stirrers is almost behind us. Cuddling with a good book on the couch or snuggled under the covers gives way to sitting at the pool, basking in the sun and enjoying our free time.
With the doom and gloom of winter nearly over we can rush headlong into spring and all the new life the changing season brings. Spring is my favorite of all seasons, it’s not too cold or too hot but just perfect. I love the smell of fresh rain. Here in the Midwest, preferably to the city air of New York. There is just something about the months of spring that inspire me and make me more optimistic than I already am.
Everyone seems to procreate during this time of year. *Waggles brows*
Love is in the air along with Japanese Cherry Blossoms; well that’s how I see it! I think that spring inspires hope, and rejuvenates us with the great weather and sunny days.
What are your favorite parts of spring?
I love the rock concerts, lovers walking down beaches, being able to feel the sun on my face without melting! Dancing in the rain, kissing in the rain and mud volleyball!

Selling small pieces of herself to strangers isn’t the life she wishes for. Deep down she aches for a better life.
A scant piece of paper gives Orias the name of a seedy business and a photograph to keep vigil over his newest target.
