Season Change

.




3/5/09

There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own rights and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own.
-Katherine Anne Porter

To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
-George Santayana

.

For him in vain the envious seasons roll, Who bears eternal summer in his soul.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes

Amazing that you posted this on this day-

When I went out to go to work Thursday, I was seized by an overwhelming notion- IT FEELS LIKE SPRING. It wasn't notably warmer that day than the day before- I wonder what it was in particular that we both seized upon?
