Saturdays are great for nostalgia. Here I am, watching the sun reappear through gray clouds, warming the day considerably. Spring is arriving in Colorado, at last.
I crave the sunshine. It reminds me of why I came to Colorado. Why I love living close to Denver and Boulder. Yes, family brought me here, but the sunshine keeps me here. It brings such joy and such memory with it. I rejoice in turning off the lights. I get giddy at the prospect of going in the small backyard to... clean up after the dogs, and not have to wade through snow. I embrace the spring season with open abandon.
Spring is also when Art as Action, a local artistic group of talented performers, launches for the season. This year, 2014, they will be holding their fund-raiser in one week, and I, for one, am marking off the days. April 4th is just around the corner, so if you're local to Denver | Boulder, you need to find a way to be at this event, yes, I mean it!
