Today is the Spring Equinox or the first day of astronomical Spring in the northern hemisphere and I’m as happy as a gnome with a flower.

Conscious of the counterpoise in the southern hemisphere, I’m adding a picture to celebrate autumn.

I’ve shared quotes from Marcus Aurelius before and another of them came to mind. I very much like the idea, but it’s one I sometimes struggle with:

O world! I am in tune with every note of thy great harmony. For me nothing is early, nothing late, if it be timely for thee.

    1. With summer in my sub-tropical area being so incredibly hot, I think I am as excited about our cooler autumn days as you are your warmer spring days. 🙂

    1. Often my favourite quotes are ideas to aspire to. I would not be too surprised if it was the same for Marcus Aurelius… though a message from him to confirm that would be something else entirely.

    1. It always takes me by surprise when I start seeing spring posts from the other half of the world – that’s what conjured up the quote.

  1. When it comes to the seasons, my spring (and autumn) song is “Que Sera, Sera” — what will be, will be. The explosion of blooms after our Great February Freeze proves that nature knows what she’s doing. I’m happy just to be along for the ride.
