Turning the Corner Towards Spring


It's been light outside past five o'clock. Just for a half hour, each day. 
My dad sent me a text message that pointed this out; that we "have turned the corner, in our orbit around the sun".  For the last few days - when I leave my office and walk into the fading light - I've thought of  the phase "turning the corner". 

It reminded me of running on the street I grew up on.  A long stretch of street where the end was still a mile away, even after the final turn. But, it signaled something. I was no longer heading out. I was on my way back. It would be just a bit farther before the sprint, the moment when home was in sight.

Here in February, a few determined perennials have been pushing through the ground. Working and waiting impatiently for the final sprint to Spring.
