Spring Forward Break Broken  Fling 

Is it warm outside today?  In life of someone who doesn’t want to deal with parking in a city and prefers to ride their bike this is a question that is often posed to a window or the weather app on my phone.

This month has been a roller-coaster of temperatures trying to keep me from biking, or at least deter me with a mid afternoon snowstorm.  Some days I weather the possibly icy winds and temperatures while others I walk outside only to remove my jacket immediately.

However, it’s officially Spring.

Noah and the Whale have a song called The First Day of Spring that’s appropriate for this time of year (duh). They’ll always have a place in my library of music that evokes nostalgia and melancholy that’s perfect for the beginning of spring.

A verse says:

It’s the first day of spring
And my life is starting over again
Well the trees grow, the river flows
And its water will wash away my sin
For I do believe that everyone
has one chance to f*&$ up their lives
Like a cut down tree, I will rise again
I’ll be bigger, and stronger than ever before

It’s a song that sounds best when the sun is rising over a new season. A season where days get warmer, ground shades greener and beckon bare feet. 

Winter is over.

A season for growth is here.
