The First Day of Spring

Spring is an erratic season. When the days are sunny and warm, get out and enjoy them. But remember, there will still be dark and cloudy days. So, for those of us who suffer from the dark weather, don’t pack away your light boxes just yet. Have them on the ready for the variability that Robert Frost so beautifully described in his poem “Two Tramps in Mud Time.”

Robert Frost, circa 1910

Robert Frost, circa 1910

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.

Wishing you Light and Transcendence,

    I would like to mention the words of one Indian sage, Sri Ramana Maharishi….

    ” Whatever that is destined to happen will always happen, no matter how hard one tries to stop it.

    Whatever that is not destined to happen will never happen, however hard one tries to make it happen.

    Hence, stay calm. ”

    Hope this is correct.
