fresh start

March was actually the first month on the ancient Roman calendar because it ushered in the Mediterranean spring. As it does in our corner of the world, too. So a Happy New Year of sorts to you on this first day of March. Only three weeks of winter remain, with all kinds of miracles going on beneath the muddy ground. Nothing happens and nothing happens and then everything happens, Fay Weldon wrote. Sounds just like March. And spring.
(Two white butterflies by Vincent van Gogh, 1889)
