S is for Sanguine

This is the time of the year for optimism. Spring. The season of rejuvenation. When the earth wakes up after days of darkness and cold. Those days of winter when Depression waits to enter the home and warm itself.
My garden outside is waking up slowly. Crocuses crept up from beneath the thawed soil.

And now, the cherry blossoms have burst out in a pink flame.
Even the most morose of humans have to acquiesce and smile to the sun.
Warmth stretches languidly after a long sleep and slowly spreads.
Time to exile negative moods.
Time to welcome happy thoughts.
Make way for summer!

  2. Dear Sangi:

    This is absolutely amazing. I read your last few posts and will complete reading the rest very soon; but I must congratulate you even before I finish reading all the posts in this category. The selection of topics from insouciance( which instantly brings to mind Bertie Wooster's use of the term) to Spring from Kicky to Quiescent is just amazing. You are inspiring me to go and get that pen and start writing. The idea that one can write about the basic of topic and still leave an unerring mark of inspiration on the reader's is amazing.

    My favorite:" A dollop of apathy with a splash of unconcern, and a topping of carelessness." Will remember this line from the I for Insouciance post for a really long time.

    Proud of you, girl. Waiting for tomorrow's post on T already:-)Wonder if we have the same word in min..hmmm.. Okay, let's see!

    Love ya!

  3. Hi! Visiting from the A to Z and I love your perspective on spring. It is one of my favorite seasons (I love the colors and crispness of fall) and seeing my crocus bloom just plain makes me happy. We're past cherry blossoms where I live, but the lilacs are blooming and lilacs are my FAVORITES, next to hyacinths. I think it's the smell. Now following you!
