Welcome back to Tuesday's Takeaways!
As the weather gets warmer and we reach official spring season, we decided to form our favorite Top Quotes into a letter acknowledging Spring!
A LETTER TO SPRING:
This is what you are to me:
"The site of rain and sun and tranquility."
-Allina Khan, STORM OF THE MASSES
I'm eagerly awaiting for you to re-enter into my life soon. When you do,
"Bring me sunshine.
Bring me your withered petals,
Bring me your blooming daisies."
-Samantha Merzel, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
"Being with you simply made me happy,"
-Emily Shrem, GOODBYE FOR NOW
"Like when I tasted hope for the first time [and]
It came in the form of sunshine."
-Jada Gordon, All I Know Has Been Rewritten
Since you have last been here:
"I’ve discovered a place...
Where the fragrant breeze wafts in,
Lavender, Honey, Lilacs
The warmest of springs."
-Melissa Louis, A Warm Winter
And even though winter seems long, I know that:
"...at the end
A glistening amount of sunshine
A rainbow full of glorious colors shines
On my face
On the world"
-Diana Ariel Harman, THE PERFECT STORM
Are you awaiting spring just as much as us? Comment below to let us know!
"Spring fever" is a term referring to both psychological and physiological symptoms that show up in accordance with the arrival of Spring. One of the reasons scientists believe it is a real condition is due to increased light, more exercise and more bare skin in these months influencing hormone levels. The exact cause remains unclear, so for now it's as real as you make it!
As for the myth:
It was thought that balancing an egg on its end is possible on the spring equinox. The truth is, aiming to balance an oval-shaped object on its end (especially one that can easily crack!) is no easier on the spring equinox than it is on any other day of the year!
Next week's theme is going to be about colors.
Stay tuned! <3
