Springtime is flowers. Springtime is picnics. Springtime is berries. Springtime is ocean swims. Spring time is waving goodbye to the sweet tunes of Bon Iver and bringing in Jay Z because you start to feel like dancing again. Springtime is honey on everything. Springtime is a gloomy cough that needs to kindly fuck off.
You want to push this spring in a particular direction. You want more long walks around the harbour, more photos, more time with the people you want to grow closer to, you want chiffon on a Sunday, you want dancing in fields, you want less tumblr, more life.
You want more fruit, less cake. More green tea, less coffee. More books, less Instagram. More creating, less watching. More reflection, less idleness. More laughs. More music. More art.
You're going to investigate French new wave cinema and ways you can cut down on carbon because global warming is not only very real but very scary. You're going to work out how to do the perfect cat eye. Find out more about Freudean psychology. Read more Donna Tart. Spend more time with people that make you laugh. You'll find out more about artists that are unknown, listen to more jazz, embrace insignificance. You're going to work and work for the things that matter. You're going to pull through. You're going to open up, say the things that need to be said.
You're going to invest in making beautiful breakfasts, eat the avocado, squeeze the lemon, pop blueberries in your mouth. You're going to continue to write in second person because it's your favourite way to write. You're going to keep listening to Empire State of Mind even though it reminds you of your last day and makes you a little sad. You're going to keep being empathetic and keep trying to make the world a little better. You going to smile at the flowers and the bees. Your going to be a pal to everyone and be soft and light without compromising what you want and what's needed.
You're going to smell like honey and sugar. You are going to say goodbye for a little while, to people that really mean a lot to you. You're not going to know how to feel. You're going to breathe, feel everything, smile and be daring. Hello spring, looking forward to spending some time with you.
