...That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!" ~Mark Twain
Spring has sprung here in mid-Michigan! Daffodils are beginning to push through the matted leaves along the campus buildings and it is a sight for sore eyes. Today we're getting weather in the 50's, which means good-bye winter coat!
Sadly my bike is still in the garage and I'm not able to go out and play due to a bruised rib: the beginning of my spring break consisted of being miserable on the couch with a head/chest cold combo, which led to some sore muscles or a bruised rib. All I know is I hurt. A lot. I'm no wimp, trust me, but one itty-bitty sneeze and I'm reeling in pain. Since I'm kind of stuck indoors, I thought it would be fun to revisit past springs. It is one of my favorite seasons - such a period of change, much needed change, revival of the senses, love, and awareness. All photos can be found on my flickr page (bigger and better).

Northern Michigan springs look a little different... and did I mention my birthday is in the spring?
