Can it be March already? Our early daffodils think so.March, nearly spring in the South, is a threshold, an invitation to newness and freshness yet unseen.Transition is in the air—though on some days we still might shiver and protest “as the icy fang/And churlish chiding of the winter’s wind/ … bites and blows” upon our bodies (As You Like It, 2.1.12-16).But the healing freshness of new life is nearly tangible in our starved imaginations—in some climates and souls more than in others, of course....more
