A little red flash of brilliance on a bitterly frigid day

Maybe cardinals were created to remind us that virbrant, colorful, quick, and playful beauty is possible in the midst of cold, nasty, SAD-prone, seemingly-unending winter weather. To encourage us to hold on a bit longer for the blessed arrival of spring... to coax a small smile from under coats-buttoned-to-chins and scarves wrapped tightly around necks to close out the icy, scratching fingers of Midwestern windchill factors. To remind us color is possible - bright like finger paint primary red - and the dull, achy, damp, plodding, grey sighs of February will soon enough come to an end.
