double hellebore

Happy Birthday to Martina (just under the wire), and Happy Vernal Equinox!

I am so happy that spring has arrived, because honestly, this winter has been awful. Between the unexpected uninsured hospital stay and various other factors, I have spent a great deal of the last few months feeling completely out of control, out of sorts, and not at all like myself. I know! Drama, much? Usually I'm so practical! I've been miserable and then guilty for feeling miserable -- a recipe for happy fun times it is not! HOWEVER... I think things may be turning around. I'm aware that this isn't the first time I've said "I think things are turning around!" but I've decided that maybe it's just a glacially slow process. Or to mix my ice metaphors, it's like the Unfreezing Process in Austin Powers: all this weird shit happens that seems contrary to progress of any sort, but it's actually necessary in order to become a thawed out human being again. (If this is a lie, please don't tell me yet.)

Anyway, hope springs eternal, and spring springs right now!

  2. So, all I was trying to say was that the weather forecast is sunny for today and I love that and I love your springtimey photos and such...Flip flops forever! Just not today because it is still all chilly and I want to keep my tootsies as long as possible...

  3. I just ran outside barefoot! Only for a minute, but I did not develop any noticable frostbite AND the sun is out enough to actually be casting shadows. Strangely enough, my entire mood has shifted to Cautiously Optimistic.

    and yay for flip flops. They are one of the great inventions of humankind.

  4. Thanks, man! It WAS a good birthday! We just got back from the beach - such a lovely, sunny day. We should go sometime soon.

  5. I would be okay with rain every Wednesday but sun every day surrounding that day...I think I could run up a hill and make a deal with god, maybe?

  6. Incredible picture of the hellebore. You rock!

  7. sorry to post this in comments, but i couldn't find a contact email...
