What a joy! Sun! Blue skies! Happiness here I come! I don’t think it is possible to write anything without an exclamation mark! It is time to start celebrating, let’s celebrate the end of winter, the beginning of new times! We can even start longing for summer!
Actually, it is a pity the old-fashioned spring-cleaning spree is no longer a tradition, when I was a child (not so extremely long ago), my mother still used the beginning of spring as an excuse for a couple of days hardcore cleaning. Which seems awful, but was not. A new fresh breeze came to our house, we shook of the dust of the cold and were inspired to start new adventures. I still have the exact same feeling of restlessness in me when the ice in the air is slowly disappearing and a sense of softness has come to town.
So, I am setting up my own spring moment. My jacket made of sheep wool will be stuffed in the back of my closet – I swear: that jacket was sexy as hell, but now I bring out the real stuff. Open shoes, dresses, tops, hmm come to think of it, my dress code is not that much different in spring, skirts, high heels, I mean, what else can a woman wear when out in town? But still, I won’t be freezing anymore…
Back to my own personal rite-de-passage, how to do a spring –cleaning without the cleaning? How to start all these new adventures waiting ahead? Maybe, unlike my mother, I won’t start dusting, I will simply throw out the old, and make room for something new. I am not talking about my house now. Goodbye winter lovers, hello world! At the end, what is better then a real fresh start?
