Spring will spring, eventually

Posted: April 23, 2013 - 12:14pm

I have spent the last few days sleeping in the “lost and found” box among the mittens and scarves. I wish I had a message of flowers and sunshine, but nothing springs to mind. I know that “hope springs eternal in the human breast” (Alexander Pope 1688-1784). Felines are more “one day at a time” (Kris Kristofferson, 1974).

If Pope is correct, and I certainly expect he is, all of you should be reading volumes on fresh plantings for spring and books on bird watching. The Kitchigami library system has hundreds of books, videos and DVDs on these very topics.

Soon, very soon, you will have little time to read because you will be outside! So will I. It won’t be eternal winter.

“Now is the winter of our discontent ...”(William Shakespeare, “Richard III”, 1592). Let us not fret but prepare for “... glorious summer ...”

Watch for the flowers.
