I am standing in line at the coffee shop when I over hear a conversation about how we are at the halfway point of winter and Spring. My ears perk up, because I had not even thought about when winter would be over or how long more we have. It seems like it has been cold for way too long and I am ready for these dark dreary days to be over. Bring on the sunshine and warm weather I say.
Well according to the Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil we have six more weeks till Spring, however according to NYC groundhog Chuck, spring is going to be here soon, which one should I go with…well I think I am siding with Staten Island Groundhog Chuck, he seems to have news I can work with. At least this time he can’t be blamed for having been dropped by the mayor and having that affect his weather predicting skills.
But here I am wide awake at 2 am, thinking about the groundhogs.
For starters I am not sure what I was doing in line at a coffee after 2 pm. When will I ever learn not to drink coffee in the afternoon ? Nothing good ever comes out of that. I spend hours laying awake over thinking about over thinking and my mind wandering down so many streets, that even google maps can’t help me out at moments like that.
So as I weasel my way out of the complex streets, I let my mind wonder about food. I want to get out of bed and grab a piece of the cake I know that it sitting in the kitchen…ok never mind, I don’t think eating cake at 2 am is a good idea, next plan is to play with different recipe ideas in my head for things I might want to eventually try…. Thoughts of food is never a good idea, always make me hungry and takes me back to wanting to eat a piece of cake.
Instead I grab my iPod and play music and if all else fails I know that music has a soothing effect on me and always lulls me to sleep.
The last I remember was “I recall the sun in our faces, Stuck and leaning on braces
And being strangers to change”.
