There is a time in the year, right after the winter slowly sets down and at the spring reawakens, where you can smell a change in the air that suggests the arrival of spring.

It smells like the sun is coming up, the earth is breathing, the chlorophyll is waking up.

It is the end of the mineral authority of winter. The air smells like renewal nature.

The first time I smelled it, it overwhelmed me. And it still overwhelms me year after year.

I feel great emotion when winter fades away.
