Monday, April 17, 2017
This photo was taken of my on the morning of my first Communion, which was about May 20 of 1956.
Note the tulips.
Today, April 17, 2017, the tulips are just about done, and the lilacs are blooming.
Spring arrives a month sooner than it did 60 years ago.
I'm glad for the Spring, but I worry about this.
It means that Summer will also arrive a month early, and probably stay long and hot a month longer.
This is such a small example, but with the violent "weather events" of the last year, I sense that we are creeping toward catastrophic climate change.
Enough of the Doomsday tone on this truly magnificent Monday.
