Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Moments

There are moments that, even though they have no real significance, mark the beginning or end of something. Maybe it’s something happy or maybe it’s something painful.

Today’s (totally optional) prompt: Moments in Time

The start of spring for me isn’t dictated by the calendar or the temperature. It’s not even dictated by the blooming cherry trees or greening grass.

Whether it’s snowing or 90 degrees, spring officially starts when I have an egg salad sandwich from The Masters and Augusta National. It officially starts when there’s golf on TV and pollen in the air. It starts when Jim Nantz talks over my naps and I wake up to watch the last 8 or 9 holes on Sunday.

Spring starts when Chairman Billy Payne (though I miss Hootie Johnson, really, because BEST NAME EVER) says it does. When Arnie, Jack, and Gary line it up and take shaky but usually perfect tee shots, that rings the bell of time.

Spring has sprung.

It would be even better if Fred would send us a gift, though.

  1. I have never been a golf person – I think it stems from a traumatic mini golf experience that involved me, four broken lightbulbs, and getting banned from mini golf for life. But I do love the connection you have. And I just read your Fred story. Too, too funny. I hope he sends you a gift this year!
