i'm not usually one who denies my climate.
i don't plant tomatoes before the first (if i'm feeling daring) or second week in May (we have a frost date of May 15 around here, and often get snow in May), and I don't usually have fits if it does snow in May.
but this i tell you - i refuse to lock up my house again this year.
the furnace is still on 62-63 (though it's not coming on very often), but friends - my windows are cracked.
i need them open.
i refuse to be shut up and locked in any more this year.
i need fresh air.
i need the changes the spring wind brings.
it's the renewal, the cleansing, the rejuvenation that i refuse to shut us off from.
even if it's damned cold i'm still inviting it in.
