I absolutely refuse to wear boots past March so all my tall leather boots have been lovingly stuffed with old rolled up magazines, slipped into dustbags, and placed in their boxes. They've been replaced with ballet flats, wedges, Converse All-Stars and Pumas. I also cannot stand the thought of wearing heavy wool sweaters so they, too, have been relegated to my out-of-season closet (i.e. the guest room). My wool socks and scarves and tweed coats have met the same fate. There may be days when I will freeze but that's the price I pay for my principles.
What all this means for my iPod is out with Pete Yorn, The Shins, Coldplay, Whiskeytown, Damien Rice, Heather Nova, Joshua Radin, Rogue Wave, Nick Drake, Ray LaMontagne, The Raconteurs and late Dave Matthews Band and in with Jack Johnson, G. Love, Lucinda Williams, Tift Merritt, The Beautiful Girls, Gipsy Kings, Cowboy Mouth, and early Dave Matthews Band.
So c'mon Spring. I'm ready and waiting.
