My apologies to the rest of the country. I know you’re oh-so-tired of shoveling snow and watching icicles form on icicles. But here in the Bay Area, we are in the clutches of an early spring and we can’t help but crow about it.
Try to think of our incessant postings of beautiful blossoms as hopeful missives telling you that spring is on its way. Trust us, it’s coming.
In the meantime, here are a few recommended readings/viewings. Peruse them under your favorite blanket (here’s mine). Me, I’ll be heading outside to soak in all this wonderful warm weather before the rain starts again on Monday.
1. Read this inspirational story about a gay couple adopting a baby abandoned in a NYC subway.
2. Explore a newly discovered lost continent.
3. Hum along to this “tit-for-tat” rejoinder to Seth Macfarlane’s tone-deaf Oscars performance.
4. Consider Zadie Smith’s 10 Rules of Writing, then add a few of your own.
Then go buy a bunch of tulips for your own table–’tis the season!
