I blinked.

I looked up.

And spring was here, or nearly here.

My head has been, not in the clouds, but in research material, books, and scientific journals. I have recently finished a nonfiction picture book text, and it was great fun. Winter slipped away (and when I peeked my head up to watch the news, it seems the east coast got a real whopper!), and now my book is done. The clouds are parting. I can look up and away from my beautiful computer screen just in time for the trees to bloom flowers.

Are you happy winter is nearly over, too?
