i love the way this day feels. every year, there's one day when you know that winter is over. yeah, it might snow again, and it's raining like mad outside, BUT!! winter is over.
i always wonder why i live in the northeast, coz i hate the cold so much , but it's where my family started out...i grew up in brooklyn and spent a long time in new york city..it was great being a teenager and then being in my 20's in the late 60's (i know, you might think i'm old now, but in my head and my heart i'll always be 25). my friends and i used to take the bmt subway line to the village and hang out near the cafe wha and bleeker street. bob dylan bummed cigarettes off me and we used to sit outside with the lovin spoonful, listening to new songs, new sounds. the early concert at the fillmore turned into the late concert on the nights when the grateful dead played and i saw led zeppelin and janis joplin in their first concerts in new york..and those nights, hangin out, walking around like we owned the world, it felt like this...you know those nights when the air is real still, and you can smell the leaves starting to bloom on the trees and the stars are in a sky so clear , you can count them.
it feels like that today..the promise of a beautiful day, a new season, new surprises...maybe tonight, i'll put on some music and bring the past to the present and dance with my man under the stars. peace
