How odd it had been for me to come from 88 degree sunshine on the weekend in my beloved desert to cold and clammy East Coast weather. The landscape looked barren -- I guess I didn't expect lush green trees coming out of winter, but the starkness of the bare trees and brown ground struck me and depressed me.

Overnight, though, the chill departed, the sun graced the earth, and corpse-like trees sprang into bloom with fluffy white or pink blossoms.

My spirits lifted, and everywhere I looked, the previously drab and dour people also sprang into smile filled bloom.
