Spring Day

The current temperature in New York is 49º F, and tomorrow it may reach as high as 59º F — I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for this. This winter was cruelly, unnecessarily long, and made tougher by the fact that I had to raise, train and walk my new puppy in the worst of it. The last week or two I was nearing my breaking point with the incessant cold weather, and I was feeling tremendously down and beleaguered. But today I took a long walk for no better reason than it was absolutely pleasant out, and I finally feel like myself again.
