From where I sit, March has a serious identity crisis. The calendar may designate this month’s waning days as the beginning of spring, but when I set foot outside I’m immediately tempted to spring back inside to escape the cold. Don’t be so fast to disparage March, astronomers would say. They know the earth is […]

Welcome to the sometimes-unsettled and slightly mysterious month of September! Mother Nature surrounds us in her golden glow and then turns the lights out early.

When a sunny and clear June day unfolded without a discernable wind and any perceptible humidity, my mother would remark on the “absence of weather.” In other words, focus on something else, because what are you going to complain about when the skies are blue and the temperature is pleasant?
