I walk among the spring blossoms on a bright blue Sunday morning on the chill side of April on the street where I live. The air is clean and crisp. The skies and trees are filled with birds of various varieties chirping and tweeting and singing sweetly. Like them I am alive and electric.
There is a spring in my step and I am in love with life.
The delicate dewy scent of freshness intoxicates my senses and I drink it all in. Soft pink petals fall like gentle snow caressing the edges of green and coloring the street below a stunning blush pink.
I can think of no better time of year than this.
