Marching Ahead

It’s March, the month of springing forward.

March: the month of forward progress, of newness and action, of spring and awakening.

March is the month of the Spring Equinox, when the plane of the Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Sun, when day and night are of equal duration all over the planet.

March should really be the first month of the year (it actually is that in the Persian calendar). It makes more sense to start anew in springtime rather than the dead of winter. March is when we shake off the cold, the slumber, and the rust. March is when blue skies return, birds sing, flowers bloom, and spirits lift. We are awakened and refreshed.

Hello, March. Shall we begin?
