On a day in a year in which we most need a respite from bad news and bad weather, it seems we are gifted with the beginning of a lovely spring. Here is a little (and I do mean little) poem to welcome spring. It made me smile because it could so easily be what happens to me on spring days when the sun is blaring all around at 8:00 in the morning like today and the birds are singing their hearts out! Enjoy!

I meant to do my work today
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree
And a butterfly flitted
across the field
And all the leaves were calling me. (Richard Le Gallienne)
