Spring

The first day of spring... Yes... Finally.

To those who may not be aware, the Vernal Equinox marks the day of the year when the sun rises directly in the East, every place on earth experiences twelve hours of daylight, and the sun sets due West. Days will continue to grow longer in the Northern Hemisphere until the Summer Solstice, June 21.

While those on the upside of the Earth celebrate today as a kind of rebirth, those poor, poor people in the Southern Hemisphere can only look forward to winter; today is their Autumnal Equinox. Vicky. Every day will get shorter and shorter until it's winter.

In Thunder Bay, Spring is the time when snow banks melt revealing brown grass/mud and dead crows that have been buried since November. Spring smells like shit here. Someone from Victoria please send me a nice big picture of Fairfield road with all the cherry blossoms in full go. You'd be doing me a solid.

The first day of spring in Victoria means having beers (3) with your fiance's best friend Simon, out in the sunshine, discussing stag parties and weddings.

And getting paid for it.

The blossom's are lovely my love. I will take a picture quick as can be.
