First day of spring

//First day of spring

First day of spring

First day of spring. Brilliant sunshine here, blazing marvelously in through the window over my shoulder.
What is there to say about that, or about a dubious rain falling in Japan now in the middle night, about strife here, there and everywhere? What is there to say amid the swirl of « events » reported and also not reported in every life and every corner of the universe and right here?
« Saying » is perhaps not necessary, perhaps it is « beside the point, » as we say in English.
So then what?
I would say at this moment that all I can do is open to what someone called « the potential mystery and misery » of all of life. That’s what spring is, an opening to « new » life.
