finally we’re getting what’s starting to feel like spring. (isn’t spring always characterized by its tardy arrival? is that because i live fairly far north on the globe or because the gulf stream on north america’s east coast has been disrupted? has it always been like this? i don’t remember spring ever beginning in march.) in any case there’s a truly youthful presence—high energy, literate, intentional relationship w technology, high creativity (& who’s favorite season is spring, leitmotif bell ringing a bit). we also get to see smith having a lot of fun with dialogue here, which is a particular strength of hers imo!
then another thing i noticed, at this point we have a lot of intergenerational interaction goin on. florence is gen z, brit & terp are millenials, richard is either gen x or boomer, paddy is silent generation. seems relevant
