the sun is my best friend.

"Shine! Shine! Shine!
Pour down your warmth, great sun!
While we bask, we two together."

- Walt Whitman

It's getting warmer and brighter and that makes me so happy. Isn't it magical, how that happens? One day we're all bundled up, feeling like we'll never be warm again, and the next, we're walking to dinner WITHOUT A COAT! Magic, I tell ya!

When Gill and I got to "No Pork" last night (a fave local Chinese restaurant), he pointed out that the heavy "curtain" that had been hung over the door to keep the cold out and the warmth in had been taken down and I'm pretty sure I flung my arms into the air and yelled, "Yippee!" (And I just realized, maybe this is my China-equivalent of the wooden boards being removed from the stairs at STU? Which makes me that much happier!)*

Spring will be here before we know it and I can picture myself now, skipping down the street, singing to myself. Well, not really. But then again, it's me we're talking about, so, probably really.

*For those of you who were not lucky enough to go to STU: At the beginning of every winter, the stairs outside are covered with wooden boards to make them a bit less slippery and dangerous. The day when you realize the boards have been removed is hands-down one of the happiest of the year! (At least, it always was for me.)
