Updates from the Blue Ridge


All seems well with the world now that spring has arrived here. Overnight, the grass is lush and green, the birds are chirping, the temperatures are double-digits and the frisbees are flying. Throughout winter we complained that it never ended, that there was so much snow that never melted.. and now, it feels like spring had never left. I’m really impressed at nature, you gotta hand it to that momma :P. I’m amazed at how blue the sky is and how warm the wind feels. I still carry that winter coat in the mornings.. still a lil wary that this brief warmth is gonna freeze again soon. Ah well, let it freeze. Its bound to end sometime or the other, summer’s not too far now is it?
Just glad to know that life can go on again.

The Rainy Day by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary. 5

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary. 10

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary. 15

Was touched by the simplicty of the poem and it’s theme.
