Day 138: Spring is party time! I would venture to say that everyone has longed for Spring after an unusually LONG winter. We are finally having spring now! The animals are excited, the humans are excited, the plants and grass are thriving! The temperatures are even warming up, not as much as I would like, but we shouldn’t be too greedy.
Spring is like finally being freed from bondage. The bondage of winter where we hole up in our homes and become couch potatoes. I used to spend more of my winters outside doing things like skiing, but my days of skiing are over. Arthritis and aging are cruel. When the temperature warms up and the sun is out, you see people come out of the woodwork. I really saw this happen in Alaska when Spring would finally arrive!
Not to change the subject, but I am going to anyway. My favorite comedian, who left this world way too soon, is Robin Williams. His passing hit me harder than any other celebrity’s death. I guess it was because I have had a history of anxiety and depression as well. I dare say he was just as talented, if not more, as a serious actor as he was a comedian! The movies, “The Dead Poets Society” and “Good Will Hunting” are just a few of the finest examples of his acting talent.
His stand-up comedy shows were hilarious, especially his “Live on Broadway” show in 2002. I invite you to watch it if you are in need of a ZILLION laughs. My favorite parts are about golf and Viagra. Now you know what kind of humor I enjoy. He is as funny as he is raunchy. I am a mother of 3 boys, so I have seen and heard it all before and am not easily offended!
Apart from a tribute to my fave comedian, I would like to share one of Robin’s many meaningful quotes, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!”
Hope you have a day full of joy, laughter and partying that a Spring day can bring! Have a great weekend!
