"Blackbirds singing in the dead of night"... and in the dead of winter. Few sounds make us happier on a dark morning in early March. Finally the earth is waking up again and life is coming back!
After a long winter with constant lack of sunshine and warmth it feels as if we're reborn. Which we actually are - together with the rest of nature.
The blackbird's song makes us want to get out light and bright clothes, buy a bunch of tulips or change our hairstyle - somehow we want to make a new start. Why not use the extra energy to lay off some bad, old habit? I'll cut down on sweets, and only have them on week ends. The power of a song :o)
