But the better sign is the fact that I am now seeing animals that I used to not see during the winter. Like the seagulls for example. They have started appearing around the area, picking on food. That is a good sign.
Earlier today, I saw the parking lot of the church that is near my house. It was unusually packed. I guess that's because it is Easter. They are rejoicing that Jesus is finally alive, after 3 days of death.
Anyway, during times like these, it reminds me of Igor Stravinsky. He composed the famous ballet La Sacre du Printemps, also known as The Rite of Spring. I like that music, with the barbaric dissonant chords, striking the silence, beginning with the bassoon. It really paints a picture of melting snow, and the ritualistic dances that accompany the arrival of spring.
Anyway, here is a video of a performance. It is just the first of five. You can find the links for the remainder on the page if you go to YouTube itself.
So there, I am happy that finally, the weather is slowly warming up. I am excited to take my vacation, and I only have 6 more weeks of wait.
