Fake Spring is here!

What a beautiful day! It's January 7th, and already the trees outside my building are all OMGWTF MUST BUD NOW! I saw very few winter coats on the commute to work, and no hats or gloves or earmuffs. I ordered my iced coffee at Starbucks and the clerk didn't slap my face and scream "Iced coffee in winter? You sick fuck!" like she always does. It's supposed to be in the high 60's today. Next week it'll back down to the 30's, though, so I'm enjoying these warm, slap-free days while I can.

My participation in Fake Spring '08 will include putting my new shredder to good use on a two foot high stack of papers, and finding a local church to take some of my old - but still good - clothes to (a number of churches in the area accept donations). Decluttering my life isn't so much a New Year's resolution as it is getting ready for the eventual BIG MOVE. Ok, that's BM for short, so I should probably change that. Although, it's true that I am getting rid of a lot of shit....

Marine Autumn

I owe you marine autumn
With dankness at its roots
and fog like a grape
and the graceful sun of the country;
and the silent space
in which sorrows lose themselves
and only the bright crown
of joy comes to the surface.

--Pablo Neruda.
