I wrote almost exactly two years ago about how the best weather occurs during the first few warm days of the year, when it's been crappy and cold out, then suddenly warm. Today was one of those days.
I wonder if this principle applies to other areas of life. If we ate crappy food for a month, would Kraft Dinner suddenly be a gourmet meal? If we slept on the floor for a week, would our beds be that much more comfortable? It's better to have loved then lost than never to have loved at all, but is it better to have lost then loved than to have loved all along?
The reverse must also hold true. After turkey and stuffing and beer and relaxation all weekend, going back to tofu and water and school won't be as fun as it once was.
Oh well, at least there are leftovers.
P.S. I got the painting above from Celene, completely without permission. She has some seriously awesome art there.
