There's a cardinal in a backyard bush. The winter's ice is inching its way off the roof. Out on the back deck, the sun has me hatless and sipping water while rocking in my chair. Today, it's 40 degrees in western Maine and there's a sprig of spring in the air. The weather calls for a storm over the weekend. Six to 10 inches of snow. But for now, after our run, it's the rocking chair and this sunshine that matter.
