primaveral pipe dreaming

Apropos to this the first day of spring,’s Word of the Day in my inbox this morning was primaveral, defined as “of, in, or pertaining to the early springtime.” Well, the only thing primaveral about this day is the plaintive longing we New Yorkers are harboring for this season to walk the walk already.

Nothing screams ‘vernal equinox’ about today’s get-up, either. However, I did make an attempt to update my do’s tincture with a bit of lavender. Alas, my coiffure, too, felt resistant to seasonal progress, and you can really only see it in direct sunlight.

Here it is in moderately direct sunlight:
