Today is the first day of spring! In celebration I’d like to share one of my favorite songs – Winter’s Come and Gone by Gillian Welch. I play this song a lot, not just when the weather turns warmer. It brings me comfort in moments of sadness since it reminds me of the kind of music my grandfather listened to while he was still alive. This tune is even more joyous for me today since this is my first spring after finding out I am bipolar. I was diagnosed just before winter set in, and I was already prone to the seasonal blues. Now that winter is finally over, my hope for this spring is that I will continue to gain stability while nature bursts with new life.
