I had not noticed it, but today's Google Doodle reminded me: we are the Spring Equinox, the official beginning of Spring. Good to know we can trust Google for these kinds of things. It was not a beautiful day of Spring. Forget about blossoming flowers and warm sun, it was cloudy, ominous clouds that were announcing rain, which finally arrived in the evening. There was also a cool breeze too. March is a treacherous month, so I was expecting it. It was, in a way, a typical Spring day: nasty weather and dark day. Springtime is rarely idyllic. Not until May anyway. If we are lucky. That said, the equinox is for me more or less a non-event, as I consider the season starting with the month, not when daytime is about to get longer than nighttime. And you, does the equinox mean anything to you?
