Sprung


Art by hyasynth Tiramisu. Thank you hy!


Yesterday, in an attempt to wear something other than black and white and red, I asked a friend to play virtual Barbies with me. While I was standing amid the pretty weeds of her land, I thought I smelled Spring. I mean, my IRL body smelled it -- Spring, overpowering even the stench of the waste treatment center that settles over our town at night. It was a balmy, warm, heated scent, as if the earth was opening up to the sky...

It made me think of the things that come with Spring. Restlessness. Travel. Light colors. Quickening of the blood. And Nijinski dancing to Le Sacre du Printemps. In honor of Nijinski I stuck on a pair of horns. Then of course I realized that I got my balletic reference wrong and was thinking of L'apr├Ęs-midi d'un Faune, a ballet for Midsummer. -- d'oh. [Mmm, the Nureyev version is so pretty.]

Ah well, the intention is clearly metaphoric. Spring is the time for horns! :D

Today the weather is fickle, and we are back below freezing. Such is life in Georgia. As they say, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.
