>Coming Season


Golden Gate Park Bridge  by rcw

As a young girl, I  used to love making wishes with dandelions….and seeing if buttercups showed the world my love for their namesake….and picking daisies to see if someone loves me or loves me not….those were all sure signs of spring.  That and the birds returning to their roosts.

The robins were the first to re-appear, their red breasts blazing against the back drop of trees coming to life.

Where they went for the winter remains a mystery, but they always seemed to return around Easter…and the nuns told us stories of how the birds’ breasts got red.  Rumor had it that one little bird tried to pull one of the nails out of Jesus’ hand and was injured, and since then every bird of that genus (male at any rate) has a red chest.  Go figure.

I know spring will be coming, and I hope it’s soon!  This winter has been brutal, and there’s till some bluster left to it according to the weather reports.  Brrrrrrr!  Prayers for everybody going through a hard time this season.

So for today, Fifty Five Is The New Coming Season,  I know it’s right around the corner!
