First Day of Spring

Today is the first day of spring. It was cool this morning as I hustled off to work before sunrise, but the afternoon sun warmed things up and it turned out to be a picture perfect day.
When I was a kid at Dora High, this time of year drove me crazy. It was still a few months away from summer break and all I could do was sit on the back row and stare out the huge windows at blue sky, fluffy clouds and trees that were slowly coming alive.
A few of the teachers would hold class outside during the period just after lunch because it seemed a struggle for everyone to stay alert. The lucky kids got study hall during that period, but some of us were not that fortunate and those hours were the longest hours of my life.
These days, I can go outside after lunch, take a walk and enjoy spring days. I consider that a gift.
I hope you all have a great spring equinox.
