springtime comes to the land
Yesterday and today have both been sunny and beautiful, with temps yesterday in the mid-40s. It was light last night as I swam laps and then stayed light until almost 7 pm. Then it was light again this morning starting at around 8 am, and the Iceland smell is back in small snatches here and there. The dark days of winter seem solidly behind us, and it finally seems sensible to look forward to the summer and make plans. It's pretty hard to think about summertime when it feels like you're behind a black curtain. But now the curtain has been pulled back, and the sunshine is streaming in.
