Winter into Spring

When I was in high school, I listened to George Winston’s piano solos. My Dad had all of his albums, as well as a Bang & Olufsen turntable, so I would plug in the headphones, sit back in a lounge chair, and enjoy. In 1982, the year I graduated from high school, Winston published Winter into Spring (you can listen to the entire album on YouTube). The track titled “Rain” was a special favorite.

The song was running through my head Saturday morning; Sue and I walked Rush to Colectivo for a cup of coffee, and the flowers were pushing up through snow. Winter into spring.

It’s nice when memory connects important moments in the past with the present, giving the present moment greater relevance.

Here’s a video from last Saturday of Sue and Rush playing in the backyard. Rush is ready for spring.
