The First Day of Spring
All you readers north of the Equator are easing into Autumn, with the thought of winter not far away. Did you know that more people get depressed in the fall than in any other season? But at least you people have The Holidays to look forward to, with the warmth of Hallmark Card commercials and the Super Bowl. The malls are dusting off their festive decorations which go up next month.
Today in Buenos Aires, the sun shone, flowers were for sale on every corner, and even people you don't know wished you, Feliz Primavera! Those of us who live in a country as far south as possible have survived a winter with no festivities to break up the dull dark days. Unfortunately spring down south means terrible, awful, suffering allergies. I had to go to the hospital this morning for a shot of cortisone. Next September, especially if my visa papers STILL aren't ready, I'm leaving the country for the whole month.
