rite of spring

Rite of spring goes back to before recorded history. Long winter never failed to dissolve into spring before summer. Sometimes winter feels like a long illness, when one is stuck indoors with the flu, cold, or whatever virus is circulating. It's dark outside. One makes an effort. Just as one is about to collapse, the sky brightens a bit. Snow melts. A little heat and sunshine, euphoria, time to emerge from the shadows. Rise from the bed. Drink wine, play music, dance, sing, it's time to celebrate.
