Spring. Warm, earthy, noisy Spring! Typically, winter passes, melding into spring, and often, too soon into the hot weather without much fanfare, but this year, I need a parade!
I have the ridiculous desire to get out and rid the yard of snow, but I know it’s nitrogen for the soil – ‘poor man’s fertilizer’ – as I’ve heard. This year I’ve obsessed mostly on the roof snow leaving, as if that’s somehow the harbinger of winter’s end.
I saw myself somewhat objectively after several days of roof viewing, and shook my head at my newest compulsion – as though my observation increases the snow’s decrease. Quantum physics holds that observation changes a thing, but the effect must also be on a quantum level as all the stupid snow did was mock me for the last few weeks by seeming not to budge.
Complaining doesn’t change a damn thing, but I read or listen to all the grousing about the weather with silent, but insincere, repudiation because I want the motherfucking winter over too – probably worse than they do!
