i long to see the color green. on the ground outside i mean.
it hit me today, on the 24th of January, an ugly Tuesday, that i'm tired of seeing white every morning when i wake up.
and i know that there is only more to come.
not only that, but walking in a slushy brown substance each day is not exactly inspiring.

i know that winter lasts longer in Winnipeg than it does in, say, BC.
but it's not exactly that i crave summer.
no, certainly not.
instead i wait for something like autumn to come.
particularly so i can see a view like this:

The view from Assiniboine park in September.

umm kid. I hate to break it to you, you might be in for a couple more months of white and gross slush. March is possibly the most ugly anything i've ever seen. But I will tell you this: when finally the trees begin to bud and the grass wakes, there will be no comparable ecstacy. Keep your chin up.
