Spring is in the air. Perhaps it's the smell of the freshly manicured lawn or the appearance of sunshine without the bitter cold temperature; I definitely sense the change in season regardless if the groundhog sees its own shadow. It's only fitting that spring adds a little bounce in my steps, since I am no longer looking at the ground to avoid the puddles. Looking up to receive the warm embrace of the sun signals my brain to be ready for more outdoor activities along with heavy road constructions, and unnecessary male tank top wardrobes.
In the spirit of the season, I decided to head out and enjoy the sunshine on the weekend and practice the virtue of patience while fighting traffic congestion. I personally find Lions Gate bridge in Vancouver to be a good place to practice, but if you want the absolute ultimate test of your patience, there is none more challenging than the Costco parking lot just before a long weekend. I do suggest a gradual increase in patience training to prevent unwanted road range related stabbings. As I waited to cross the bridge in traffic, it wasn't all bad with the sun shining. I tapped my fingers and belt out my most relatable song of "Man! I Feels Like a Woman" by Shania Twain, I was no longer troubled... on the road!
Wandering around my destinations, it was hard not to marvel at the easy of access to these beautiful places. The joyous thought turned to anger and rage, and it gradually became all consuming. It turned out, I was just really hungry. I grabbed a coffee and a Subway sandwich before making my way home on this beautiful day.
