Spring is around the corner! Less than a month from turning the page on winter, it is time to start looking and listening for evidence of the new things springing up and singing all around us. Every year, right around Valentine’s Day a red cardinal flies to the top of our gingko tree and starts singing for his mate. In Chicago it is easy to fall prey to  complaining, even lamenting the endlessly long spell of February grey, but into this Feb. grey charged our little songbird ready to build a new nest with his reliable lady. Sure enough, like clockwork on February 14th we heard him for the first time, at the very tip-top of the tree thrusting his song out across the muddy, drab shores of our existence.
