Happy Sprinter!

Ah, spring! Today is the first day of spring (in my Hemisphere, at any rate). So, naturally, the temperature has dropped 25 degrees and snow is on its way! In other words, spring hasn’t sprung. Still, I have it on good faith (and I do mean faith) that it will. So Happy Sprinter!

Mitch Teemley


Uncertain spring,

no longer winter.

Transition’s the only

permanent thing.

So why should we wait

to lift up our hearts?

Let us huddle together

and celebrate Sprinter!

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”

~George Santayana

  4. Yup, my wife and I took a trip up to the foothills to see the spring wild flowers – the road was closed due to snow…

    It’s beautiful spring weather here but I feel for my friends in New England. While I miss living there, I can’t say I miss the snow. Sending you warm thoughts!

    I happen to enjoy variety and early spring (early fall, too) offers plenty: sweaters one day, coats the next; clear skies one day; a gray comforter of clouds the next. Such fun. From now on, when the discussion of favorite seasons comes up, I’m going to say Sprinter! Thanks, Mitch!

  8. Happy Sprinter, Mitch! It’s been sleeting today… and calls for snow tonight. March is such a fickle month! 🙂

    The icy wind off the lake took my breath away while downtown today. It was all I could do to get into my car. Really?! Happy Spring anyway!

  12. Mitch, you don’t understand. Spring has sprung. Snow is just frozen sunshine coming down to greet us. Can’t you feel the warmth of it? LOL

  14. Spring snows have been with me, all of my life. Even here in AZ, it snowed on Mother’s Day, in 2016. Happy Sprinter, indeed!
