A fresh spring dawns – chilly and unpredictable, like the energetic sea, but alive with possibility

The weird thing is that in the middle of all this I can feel spring breaking out not only in me, but in the world. And what a spring. Really, it’s been three years since spring broke out. It tried to break out this time in 2020, but then winter came, a long winter, with all the darkness and hibernation that brought.

Of course there was good weather in the pandemic, and we were out in it. Indeed, we were obsessed with the weather. The colour of the indifferent sky dictated our mood most of the time. But it never felt like spring was coming. It never felt like the world was coming back to life. Until now.
