The Great Turning

Despite being a little bit rainy and gloomy, the weather's actually been kinda spring-like over the last week or so, in a non continuous kinda way.

Atticus and I took advantage of the nice weather this past weekend to have a nice walk in the park on a couple occasions.

On Sunday last, he and I were strolling along in the park when we passed this young dad and his little boy. I wasn't really paying attention, but a bird must have hopped in front of them on the ground.

"See that bird?" the dad asked. "That's a cardinal."

And I turned really quickly in time to see the bird before it took flight to escape the kid, who was about to step on it.

And I smiled, 'cuz I always smile when I see the first cardinal of spring.
