Marching into March with Open Arms

March is here! Yippee!

The clocks will soon ‘Spring Ahead’ and we will begin a new season (at least mentally we will).

March calendar

The calendars are flipped over and a new scene faces me.

My Hawaii calendar reveals lava burning water, my Ireland calendar focuses on County Limerick, my gardening calendar displays bright yellow daffodils, my Nevada calendar shows Lake Tahoe and my NY calendar shows the Adirondacks and of course my Colorado calendar shows Rocky Mountains covered in snow.

As you may surmise, I love calendars. I love measuring time, day by day, week by week, month by month. I love flipping the page to something new and wonderful. That’s how I look at the month – something new and wonderful!

I won’t bother to ask how did March appear so quickly, instead I’ll invite you to tell me what you love most about this month. Is it the smell, additional sunlight, Lent  or St. Patrick’s Day, sprouts, winter skiing… what makes you smile when you think of March?
