Welcome Spring!

This morning at precisely 1:48 A.M. EDT the sun crossed over the Earth’s equator (Vernal Equinox) and for the northern hemisphere marks the first day of spring. Winter is a very difficult time of year for many of us. Spring brings the promise of enduring life and for many of us renewed hope. It also reinforces our powerlessness over all but our own mental sobriety.

"Sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself."

Thanks Rita... I know I'm doing my Spring-Is-Here Happy Dance today. So great that This too shall pass even applies to winter!

Love the Zen saying, too. Happy Spring!
