Our apartment’s floor to ceiling windows overlook the Charles River and provide us with a bird’s-eye view of the changing seasons. A friend said it was like a screensaver. It is—but even better.
Last week a sea of yellow daffodils blossomed overnight on the banks of the river. The rowers in their colorful racing shells are back from their winter break, slipping through the water, their oars in perfect cadence. The cars winding along the road on the other side of the river will soon become invisible as the buds on the trees between them and us burst into leaves. Runners, bikers and walkers have shed their winter jackets.
Yes, a chill wind still blows, but spring is here.
