Week 24 – Spring Cleaning

March 22, 2009

The Spring Equinox falls on March 20th for this part of the world.  Days will grow noticably longer and (hopefully soon) warmer.  Animals mate and bear their young during the spring, reminding us of ancient celebrations ensuring fertiility and growth.

We in turn get that nesting urge by participating in different versions of “Spring Cleaning.”  Garage sales are growing in abundance and we encourage everyone to go through their belongings and donate to various organizations of their choosing (ex. Northwest Center). 

Our version of Spring Cleaning was to visit a spot that epitomized Spring and young love.  We went to an area near the airport where people go to watch the airplanes take off and land.  It was fun to fill our 49th and 50th buckets with so much excitement in the air.

Speaking of entertainment, we picked up a lot of alcohol containers, fast food wrappers and the occasional empty box of condoms.  Ah, young love…Seattle’s version of Spring Break.

Traditionally, during this time of year our ancestors felt the urge to clean their homes…we take this opportunity to clean our homes as well, inside and outside.
