It’s official, spring is now here. This week marks that magic moment when our days finally become longer than our nights. Of course there is no guarantee that any of these days will actually have the sun shining but it is at least encouraging to know that the potential is there to experience, on the average, 3 more minutes of daylight every day from now until the summer solstice, at which time we start losing 3 minutes a day until we hit the fall equinox when once again the days become shorter than the nights. I find sometimes it is better not to dwell on this kind of information and just appreciate each day as it unfolds. Call me simple minded if you like but this is how I stay sane.
