March Wrap-Up

So that was March. And spring is really coming on now: Temperatures rising, more light, more sun, more freckles, the first sunburn. What more is there to ask for? Spring fever maybe, a bit of romance and walks in the fields or drinks in the park…

But the strange thing with coming out of march and leaving the winter behind is that it feels like stepping out of the shadows. You leave a shadow but still carry around your own one. So I can’t see the summer coming on yet. Sure, it looks as if it does. But I do have a hard time believing it. Not just in terms of the season.

I came across a photo that might be a good illustration of this. It’s by Laury Taylor, taken from her Art She Said series:

Laura Taylor, Art She Said

März ist vorbei und es wird tatsächlich Frühling. Steigende Temperaturen, mehr Licht, mehr Sonne, mehr Sommersprossen, der erste Sonnenbrand. Was will man mehr? Frühlingsgefühle vielleicht, ein wenig Romantik, Getränke im Park und Spaziergänge in der Natur.

Es wird merklich Frühling, es fühlt sich aber nicht an, als wäre der Winter schon vorbei. Noch ist es, als würde man in die Sonne gehen und eben trotzdem einen Schatten mit sich herumtragen. In etwa wie auf dem Foto von Laura Taylor oben, das aus der Serie Art She Said stammt.
