Surprise and Happy Groundhog Day.
This day is the cross-quarter day–midway between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. For me, today is the first day of spring–the quickening when roots stir and hibernating critters begin to wake. My present to myself is a large bonfire and small libation of Laphroaig.
Your present is a pdf of “A Cold Spring” –With 2 new episodes. (I’d give you a taste of my Laphroaig if you were here–really I would.) Use the navigation buttons at the bottom of the pdf to make the image larger and to move to the next page.
Be sure to visit Sorchia’s Universe every Tuesday for new episodes.A Cold Spring 1-18 Revised
