When I think of March 1st, a first grade band march plays in my mind by the same name. The color green is predominant in March, and in Kansas it means we are in for some high winds! 😦 It’s not going to be too warm this month, but I’m ready to go outside more than I did in February – aren’t you?
My friend John just sent me another video – yay!!! He’s taking a nature walk along the Little Walnut River. There’s also a corny joke thrown in there… well – you’ll see – LOL!!! Oh – and I like that GREEN shirt! 🙂
I can’t think of a better way to spend the first day of March. We’ve all suffered a little cabin fever over the past few months – especially my friends in the eastern United States.
We’ve enjoyed a very mild winter – so far. I say that because I remember past years when we have mild winters and think we are home free… then get a few inches of snow in early April. I don’t think that will happen this year as Easter is so early. We usually don’t have snow after Easter.
John’s video has inspired me to get out and walk – how about you? It improves every aspect of life to move around and change our surroundings once in a while. There are even mental benefits to exercise – and that means so much.
It is the first mild day of March:
Each minute sweeter than before…
There is a blessing in the air,
Which seems a sense of joy to yield
To the bare trees, and mountains bare,
And grass in the green field…
We from to-day, my Friend, will date
The opening of the year.
Love, now an universal birth,
From heart to heart is stealing,
From earth to man, from man to earth:
—It is the hour of feeling.
– William Wordsworth (1770–1850), “To My Sister”
Have a wonderful (but windy) March! 🙂
