Spring equinox

The spring equinox is approaching fast. I can feel it as the days get lighter. The two equinoxes (September 20 and March 20) are the times of the year when the length of the day is changing at its greatest rate. The blood is starting to really flow. I often have a sort of restless feeling this time of year. The kids too have been waking up earlier. I remember now that for the years I have been a parent, instead of dreading the “spring forward” change of clocks and “losing” an hour, I have really looked forward to it. These days Kadin is waking up at 5 or 6 in the morning, but in a couple of weeks, that will be the much more reasonable 6 or 7. Welcome spring!
