The signs are subtle, but unmistakeable.
“Welcome to Dubois!” read the scrolling digital sign in town last week. “Spring is almost here.”
Nonsense. Spring is already here.
We’ve waited so long for the days to lengthen and the breeze to feel more gentle. There’s no question now that the vigil is ending.
Back in Brooklyn, spring burst in with a gaudy show of flowering trees. Here, the signs are more subtle–but unmistakeable nonetheless.
