the tiny green ones on the trees and the cans of beer at the ballfield.
As much as life has changed over the past 50+ years, the rites of spring seem to spring eternal. I have a compulsion to sit out on the lawn, but I no longer live across the street from Cunningham Park in Queens (which had a great expanse of lawn). I ate my lunch (fresh greens, in fact) on a bench on a suburban main street, but it just wasn't the same.
One huge advantage of technology is its portability. When I started my business ten years ago, working outdoors was still difficult. I needed a wifi signal, an electrical outlet, a non-glare screen, and a notebook to write in (because I usually still couldn't see the screen). Now I have my iPad mini and my hot spot.
But frankly, this wonderful weather and warm sun lures me away from my devices. Perhaps it's time for us to all catch a little of that spring fever, trade in turtlenecks for tees, swap our Spotify for some live tunes, and ditch our Facebook friends for the real ones (who will update you on their status with their voices rather than their posts).
See you outside...
