Friday March 20, 2015 – midafternoon. The vernal equinox is due at 6:45 PM – yes spring is due in less than 4 hours! But old man winter is having none of it.2015-03-20_15-04-37_01

A biting wind, freezing temperatures, and a light – barely perceptible snow forms a haze on the horizon. And winter gives breath to Dylan Thomas –

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

A bench sits empty by the cold, cold, cold ground of an old cemetery.2015-03-20_15-08-32

New snow forms wispy drifts on the frozen surface of the pond.2015-03-20_15-14-00_01

Spring will come to the registration desk tonight and find that her room is still occupied.
