Spring is here! Finally I can schuck off this layer of skin that’s been battered by icy rains, slushy snows, and windy winds that didn’t bring a harsh winter, but a harshly long winter.
There’s something about Spring that I like way more than Fall. Lots of people I know will say “you’re crazy – Fall is great.” Then I push them and say “how was that fall?!” And we laugh and laugh as they cough up blood.
Stuff kind of stops happening in the winter time. People stay inside and become a ghost in both hue and recreation. In the fall it’s a big wind-down from all the traveling and heat of the summer and a gearing into family mode for going home often for holidays and buying warm clothes for winter. Spring is great because there’s always a feeling of something new.
The sun comes out and ideas start blossoming in my brain about all the cool stuff I’m interested in and what the next 6 months will bring until I run into my whole fending off the beating fists of winter’s chilly poundings.
What’s on my agenda for the summer? Hopefully a lot more music – playing and watching, maybe some more creative-writing side-projects and, if things go well, a potentially VERY cool thing that’d be a perfect fit for me.
I’m also looking forward to getting a second opinion on my shoulder and rehabbing the crap out of it. Because come this time next year, I not only want to be coaching Ultimate, but playing it again as well.
Happy Spring everyone!
