Spring is in the Air

I’ve been feeling restless of late. I want to get out and explore. I want to go places and do things. I want to have some fun. I want to go zip lining! I want my life to begin again.

The problem is, the weather is still crap. Sometimes I think if I don’t see the sun soon, I’m going to lose my ever-loving mind. And I don’t really have anyone to do things with. It’s frustrating. I have all this energy that’s not getting expelled. It makes me fidget. I’ve recently started shaking my leg again, which is a bad habit I had in high school.

What is going on with me? Is this just sexual frustration writ large? A delayed mid-life crisis? Too much caffeine?

And then I look in my front yard and notice that the azaleas and rhododendrons are all in bud. They’re on the verge of bursting forth in riots of color. Any day now. Change.

Spring fever. Now I get it.

  1. There is nothing wrong with you except that you are truly becoming a Seattleite! Spring Fever is endemic here. That feeling that you will lose your mind if it does not stop raining: welcome to the tribe! Such frustration fuels all coffee shops and writers work! By the way, the cherry blossoms are about to bloom on the Quad at the University of Washington campus, don’t miss it, it is a Rite of Spring. You can whirl in circles under the gently falling blossoms and no one will think amiss. Welcome to the craziness!
