Hello again.

Last week Northern Ohio had a brief but oh-so-sweet burst of warmth and sunshine, melting longstanding mounds of gritty snow and putting smiles on everyone’s face. Suddenly the air was smelling of loamy soil, hopeful bulbs and the promise of Spring... Pale Clevelanders were seen grabbing their running clothes and dashing outside. Convertible tops went down. Restaurant tables hit the sidewalks. Faces turned up to the sun like flowers. Grouchy people were caught acting nice.

I’m not sure that those of you who live in kinder climates can comprehend the huge pop in optimism and energy that happens when the weather changes like this. It’s quite a glorious moment or two.

Then of course, after a couple of days, the gray skies and snow came back - a brief window indeed. But that’s OK. It’s different for us now, now that we’ve gotten a sniff of Spring. We know it’s coming. No wonder this seasonal shift is such an overused metaphor for hope!
