Spring Has Sprung
"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad."
Spring is one of my favorite seasons. Life is emerging from every tree, perennial, and animal. But, the sounds of the awakening birds are what I love most. From the very crack of daybreak there is birdsong coming from every direction. It is what gets me moving in the mornings. They are always on time, never late. They know when I should be up and preparing for my day with a hot cup of coffee. It's hard to 'wake up on the wrong side of the bed' when you hear the beautiful chorus of a variety of birds blending together perfectly.
