The Infallible Sign

If you are paying attention there are signs, things that indicate what lies ahead. All kinds of them all over life. Poker players look for each other’s tells as a way to increase their chances of winning. When my wife decides to sit down on the coach to watch television at night it is an indication that sleep is not too far off. Then there is that strange (be honest it really is) celebration of Groundhogs Day when we say that a marmot and his shadow will tell us when we can expect to see spring. None of these would I ever describe as infallible.

It is the signs that Spring is coming that have been beginning to grab my attention this week. There have been an increasing amount and variety of songbirds bringing music to my ears. There is a noticeable increase in the activities of small mammals scampering about. But today, I saw the infallible sign of an ant in my kitchen! So it is official, Spring is near.

The ant has spoken.
