“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!'” — Robin Williams
Surely by now, warm spring weather has started to arrive in even the chilliest parts of the northern hemisphere. Better late than never! What can we do to celebrate springtime this week? Take a walk, plan a picnic, visit a park. Make some lemonade, bake some cookies (before it gets too hot to turn on the oven), call friends and invite them for a cookout. Or just sit outside and bask in the return of warmer weather. Whatever you do, I wish you joy. May the springtime weather lift our spirits and bring hope to our hearts!
This post was originally published seven years ago today. By now, you may or may not be allowed to do any of the social activities mentioned above. Of all the things I take for granted, I never imagined being restricted– by law, of all things– from seeing friends in person. How strange the world has become! But we can still find ways to party, as some of the things mentioned above can be done in social isolation.
