tuesday inspiration


"It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is. 
And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know
what it is you do want, but it just fairly
makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
~~ Mark Twain ~~

i woke up this morning at 7:30am,
and ate breakfast to the sound of the first songbird
singing outside my window.
he sang joyfully and haphazardly,
trying out different tones and techniques,
as if he was shaking the dust off his vocal chords
and preparing himself for some spring courting.
it pleased me to no end to hear that little bird
singing and squawking,
sounding shrill and excited,
because to me it meant that spring is really on its way
and even the birds can't wait for it to arrive.

that's all the inspiration i need on this tuesday morning!
