Tomorrow marks the official beginning of the spring season. As a true lover of autumn and winter, I am always less enthusiastic than most folks about the approach of warm weather...espcially when the trend, over the past few years, seems to be to skip right over lovely spring and running headlong into hot, humid summer. However, this year I am somehow deeply touched by the early signs of spring. The soft pink of flowering trees, the brilliant yellow forsythia and daffodils, the birdsong, the warmth of the afternoon sun...all speak to me of the mystery of the emerging of new life. I intend to enjoy this season, whether brief or long lasting, and learn from its secrets.
