Based on recent conversations, I’m not alone in swinging from ants-in-my-pants restlessness to decommissioned-freighter mode. Could the diagnosis be as simple as spring fever?

…tis the season when it seems imperative to shake off the doldrums, say sayonara to the mundane, and dropkick the characterless to the curb…
