Today is the first day of Spring. I have heard it said that Spring is a hazardous time for those inclined to depression, perhaps because optimism and hope can be so often dashed. Today the high here is in the upper 60s, tomorrow the predicted high is 49. But there is hope.
The year’s at the spring,
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearled;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in his Heaven—
All’s right with the world!

Robert Browning, Pippa Passes, 1841
