...the great gray beast February

The great gray beast February has me in his belly. (Read The Thief of Always by Clive Barker to understand the reference.) Days like today make me glad that there is only one week of this gray, gray month left and spring is just around the corner. Cold, gloomy days like today make me think of an acronym I learned years ago--HALT--never let yourself get too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. On days like today I can add my own acronym to that--DIP--discouraged, indecisive and petulant. I am ready for the sun to shine. I am ready for it to warm up. I am ready for the taxes to be done, the resume to be written, and the phone to ring. I'm ready to come out of hybernation. Come on spring! Release me from the beast!
