It’s been a snow, hail, sun, and now wind-warning few days as Vancouver ushers in the 1st of March – the gateway to spring! And I anticipate a busy month as soon as the snow melts and the west coast gardening season officially begins. I am also hoping for a month of community and personal renewal in keeping with the change in seasons – and I’ve got a month of really interesting and awesome events coming up including several dinners in the progressive community (ecology, union and civic stuff), a Balkan music fest in Van and then overnight with Brian to Willows Inn on Lummi Island this weekend, a long visit with a friend mid-month, a fiction reading by a mentor from my high school years, and some community grant-writing to get on. It’s looking like a busy month – yes – but one of positive and progressive events that I’m looking forward to.
So bring it on March – weather and all!
