The first day of spring is always a cheerful one for me. Spring in the pacific NW has been here for a month at least but to have the calender recognize the happy fact is nice. Of course with the thought of spring one has a tendency to think of flowers, greenery, and the dormant earth coming to life... never mind the mud the newly awakened insects, and dreary grey skies. Spring is one of the rare occasions in which the human psyche tends toward the positive. So I say... Hurrah for Spring!!!
