However I think I am in the homestretch! I even feel like exercising again, and this always happens when the weather warms up. I think I need to move somewhere that winter does not take up 8-9 months of the year.
So this little piece is a nod to winter breakup--when the Yukon River starts to flow again, when the little bushes along the riverbank begin to get leaves, and spring arrives in the Yukon.
Spring can't come too soon for me!
