It's the first day this year that it actually feels like spring. How I have yearned to not wear the layers of a jacket, under a coat, beneath two hoods, gloves and a scarf, all while fumbling to sneak earphones under it all. Today I just just wore the coat. My morning ritual was so much easier without all the layering and wobbling out the condo door.
I really am looking forward to spring. The winter feels so long this year. I can't wait to see the first crocus and daffodil pushing through the earth.
The world seems so chaotic. It looks likes the California Supreme Court will not overturn Prop 8. The US, Vatican and Middle East all refused to join the decriminalization of homosexuality at the UN. Our prime minister admitted this week the War on Afghanistan has no goal, troops cannot even secure the nation. The US is still slaughtering innocent Iraqis too. People in the world are suffering from the horrible governing of both democrats and republicans. Now I see vile Americans screaming about protectionism. I hate to tell them they fucked up the world economy, now is not the time to turn your backs away from the mess you created. Think globally you selfish bastards. Open a world map and anywhere your finger lands on it you will hit a place the US and their greedy corporate whores caused damage.
We're here in Canada, it's a lovely place in a chaotic world. I wish the world more of Canada and less US, Vatican and Middle East.
