"It's spring fever...

...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).

Central Park, spring break in New York City.


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

Dominican Republic, spring break.

My favorite place in the entire world.

Well, that would be as far back as my camera goes for spring!  How are you celebrating?
