Last week was bitterly cold, but temperatures this week are above normal. The wind is bringing mild air and rain from the Atlantic. Hoorah for the mild air, but I’ve got enough rain for the time being, thank you very much.
In an attempt to project forward to a bright summer rather than be looking out at the rain, I took a look back to what I wrote six months ago. The Dahlias were in full bloom. The article is about pandemics throughout history. I’m glad to have a chance to read back through it.
I’m reminded also that we are merely cosmic specks. We live. We die. In between, there’s every sort of joy and sadness. It’s as certain as Irish rain.
