A change in the light.

I used to live in an apartment with an expansive view.  As the seasons passed, I would watch the trees change in unison.  I could see all the way to the lake.

It was there that I learned how the sun would travel across the sky.

Now that we've been in our home for over a year, I've begun to discover the way light travels here.  And this brilliant shaft of late afternoon sun only comes with the longer days.

Spring will be here soon.  I know because the sun said so.
