In all deference to the Lenten Season it feels like it has been raining for 40 days and 40 nights here in western Washington. And like Christians waiting for the return of their savior, I wait for the return of Spring. The snow has fallen hard and low in the Cascades this winter and I long for a sign of spring. Nature's lantern, the skunk cabbage should be blooming soon giving me hope that spring is indeed just around the corner-although its a long corner! On a positive side, the sun is now rising before 7:30 and setting after 5:15. Let there be light! And let Spring begin its procession of renewal.
