Spring Is Here


No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. 

Hal Borland

The Spring Equinox is the day when the periods of daylight and night are exactly equal. Here on the Tropic of Cancer (23 degres North latitude) it’s hard to notice as we generally enjoy 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Our daylight hours vary only a few hours annually. But back at home, I’m sure all of our shivering friends and relatives are breathing a sigh of relief, albeit in the form of a frost cloud, as they visualize long, lazy midsummer nights. For that, they’ll have to wait for the Solstice.
