It's officially spring.
This year, the vernal (or spring) equinox fell just before midnight on March 19 - earlier than it has in the lifetime of anyone reading this. Since 1896, in fact.
There is an explanation involving leap years and leap centuries and resetting calendars every four centuries. It's pretty geeky but, if you're like my husband and enjoy that kind of thing, you can find it all spelled out
The big news, obviously, is the COVID-19 pandemic. Things are in a state of flux and, unfortunately, likely to get worse before they get better.
Please, take this situation seriously. While panicking will help no one, being cautious will help everyone. And not being cautious could do a great deal of harm.
I wish you safety and I wish you good health. And I wish you the joy of loving where you live.
