SPRING FEVER! (Cheryl Renée Herbsman)

I'm addicted to spring. I love everything about it -- at least in Northern California. Here, it usually heralds the end of the dreary rainy season. Most spring days entail gorgeous blue skies that feel truly limitless, bursting blossoms of all colors and fields and hillsides blanketed with wildflowers, and cool crisp air that makes me feel high. I want to dig my toes into the earth and eat the sky. I want to run and frolic and also lie in the sun and daydream.

You might think this would mean the season isn't conducive to writing, but surprisingly, spring is great for that too -- because the glorious weather and the new growth make me feel like I can conquer the world. Revisions quiver before me! New material floods from my pen! Nothing can stop me! Mwaahaaahaaahaahaaa!

You should have seen me last week when it was still all rainy and grey -- kinda pathetic, deep in the withdrawal phase of the addiction. But my season seems to have arrived and I intend to enjoy every second of it ;)

Happy Spring!
