  • Spring is nearly here, and all is getting brighter with longer days and warmer temperatures. I will take a walk through the neighborhood to see the crocus and tulips pushing their heads through the packed soil into view. They assert themselves in blazing colors: yellow, pink, purple. It's time to toss off our coats and get warmed in the sun. The promise of renewal is on its way.
