March 9, 2011
It's Lent. I think what I like about this time of the year is that we're coming out of winter and going into spring. Just the thought of that transition makes me happy.

It still feels like winter in March, after the first day of spring. To me, it isn't really spring until Easter. Then I feel like I can enjoy the season.

Lent gives the sensation of barrenness and of self-denial. Those aren't bad things, but they're reminiscent of winter, especially winter in the old days when we all depended upon what we could yield from the earth.
