i don’t usually buy my STILL blog subjects. it goes against the intention of STILL–to find subjects in my natural environment, every day, through attentiveness and curiosity. but today i gave in. all the signs of spring are here–the goldfinches are back, the light is noticeably more yellow and brighter than it’s been in six months–but there are still three feet of snow yet to melt. i’m tired of dried bits, remnants of summer and fall. i always get to this point in march, and now, here i am. i needed a little color and something a little closer to alive.
