Every Friday morning we kick off your weekend with a series of videos, loosely gathered around a theme. This week, the end of winter and the hope of spring.
Winter is ending, but not yet. Spring is waiting, off in the wings. One can feel the earth awakening, the dead trees and grass waiting, the sun returning. Something is about to start, but first something else must die. We’re standing on the cusp of something, standing on the cold precipice, looking down across snowy slopes to a warmth in the valley. All The exhilaration is yet to come, but a pale shadow of it washes over us now, like a memory of dream slipping away, just as one wakes.
