The first day of spring

is officially today, Feb. 3. I said so.

Not that we aren't probably going to get more chilly weather, and rainy weather for sure (I hope; if we _don't_ get a whole lot more rain, it's going to be a fire year from hell). But it feels like we've finally turned the corner. The camellias in our yard predicted it two weeks ago, and I'll back them against Punxsutawney Phil any day...

I enjoy reading your words

So glad to run across this entry. I've been advocating for years that the Solstices and Equinoxes are the middle-points of their seasons.

Also, I want to thank you for your poem, "Believing Soul," (Dec 2008). I'm a Chaplain Intern and read it to the gathered Chaplains and Interns at our morning report this last week. It touched many hearts there and I suspect it rippled out into our patient encounters that day and that week.

Many blessings...
