First Day of Spring Personal Life

Jane Hutcheon

Stepping into the sunshine, I feel myself unwind.

Suddenly the tight spiral staircase unravels inside me and in front of me like a long cloth unfurling. 

This is what it's like to begin to feel free. 

I see everything: the calm sea, fishing boats, the Island.  Why so many oversized poodles?

It's the first day of Spring but warm enough to swim.  There are races in the ocean pool. 

This is what it's like to begin to feel free.  No have-tos. No more homework. No people's heads to dive into into except my own.

I am an optimistic fisherman standing on the rocks.

Or a Mexican cliff diver whose feet have just left the edge....
