Vernal Equinox 2011
Today is the Vernal Equinox, a balancing point en route to more and more light in the equatorial North but less and less and less in the South. I’m near the balancing point but still to the North. Ninety-one days of increasing daylight culminating in the Summer Solstice: points where spirituality and science converge; more meaningful than manmade holidays, good times for reflection and introspection; for cleansing and planning, considering and reconsidering, evaluating.
Outside my windows in the Celestial City, clouds hover making the landscape hazy and indistinct, very much like my life. That’s not necessarily bad. I wonder how the day will evolve much as I wonder what my future has stored for me and of that, how much I’ll find and how I’ll impact it. How it will impact me. Is love around the corner and if so, the corner I just turned or one I’ve yet to find.
Melancholy is an equinox of sorts, a bittersweet balancing point. I wonder if today will be melancholy too.
