How about some music?  Something with a kick drum.  A beat to stomp down the street to, some oohs-and-aaahs to lift your spirits or propel you toward sunnier days.  Because, if you're anything like me lately, you could certainly use it.  Toronto was hit with (one last?) blast of winter this week, perhaps the worst snow storm we had downtown all winter.  Demoralizing, to put it mildly.

Though the temperature still lingers below freezing, the sun is out, and it's time to take what we can get.  So hit the pavement, go for a walk, bask in the cool brightness of today and listen to something with a juicy backup vocal or a swirling glockenspiel.  Let's take back our mood, come on get happy!

(Plenty of fresh tulips don't hurt, either.)
