Goose Girl And Border Collie

goose-girl-and-shepherd-dog-free-license-CC0Spring rides no horses down the hill,
But comes on foot, a goose-girl still.
And all the loveliest things there be
Come simply, so, it seems to me.
If ever I said, in grief or pride,
I tired of honest things, I lied:
And should be cursed forevermore
With Love in laces, like a whore,
And neighbours cold, and friends unsteady,
And Spring on horseback, like a lady!

By Edna St. Vincent Millay

Dirty Snow

March 19 2015

March 20 is to be the first day of Spring, but here in the Boston area, and doesn’t have the feel of a new season set to begin, as it has and still is windy as all hell, with wind chill factors at times in the teens. Also, there is snow to arrive on Friday, and in some places it could be a plowable one.

New Best Seller: How To Understand Women

Note: When I took a break from blogging, the very next day, I came down with a nasty head cold. And it happened on the first day of spring. So my thinking is still bit foggy. With that said, here is a bit of humor from the email inbox.

Thought you should know that the abridged version of “Understanding Women” is finally out in paperback._Howto

Winter Solstice

Today, December 21,  begins the first official day of winter. It is also the shortest day of the year, day light wise. As the days start getting longer again, we will have one extra second of day light beginning Wednesday, and as the days go by, gradually the sun will be rising earlier, and setting later, right up to June 21, then back to the days of getting shorter again.

With this being the first day of the winter solstice, depending where you are, cold, sometimes frigid weather, snow, sleet and if we’re lucky warmer temperatures and just plain old rain. I prefer the liquid over the white stuff, and surely not a big fan of black ice, since I’d practically wrecked my shoulder, from slipping on it, many years ago. The cold I can deal with, as I have always loved the cold weather, versus the hot, humid air that comes in during the summer. In any case, 90 days from now, spring will be here.
