Do you have a junk drawer? You know, the place to put things that just don’t have a place of their own. A drawer to keep mementos, elastic bands, the “something” that might come in handy “someday”, or the “other thing” that you don’t know quite what it belongs to.

do you feel spring in the air?
Spring is in the air! Can you feel it?
It’s enough to inspire one to wax poetic!
“Spring is here.
The grass is riz.
I wonder where the birdies is.”
Did you see that robin? Do you hear that birdsong?
Put on your dancing shoes. Make way for the music.
winter blues in the red heart month
I was just thinking about climbing under a cozy afghan and waiting for winter to melt into spring… Are you feeling down in the dumps and you just can’t muster the energy to climb out? Do you have an overwhelming urge to hibernate? Are you unusually tired even though...
