it was with a certain amount of subdued joy that i greeted the first signs of spring. after all, i was told how beautiful it is, and i am looking forward to it. So of course the first signs has excited me. when the first blooms showed, the day was bright, the sky was blue. but the winter gray is not done, and the days are a mixture of fog and smog, with low visibilty. i can tell only by the acridity in the air which it is. never thought my nose would become so important in weather lol. the variations in temperature is wild . like 55˚ in the morning, to 80˚ by midday. still, its not a hot 80˚, but somewhat humid.
garments are changing. a few times i have seen a few citizens looking at me warily as i seem to be dressed more appropriately for late spring that late winter. it must be something about mad dogs and jamaicans…
i was asked recently ‘what is happiness?’. my reply, ‘oftentimes, its the simplest of things’ …and it is. just the first signs of blooming flowers was enough to set me off. now i’m prepping myself for the full bloom of spring. already splashes of colour are beginning to show a new face on the city. so, i just want to share some of my first images of the beginnings of spring.
bye for now
