Vernal Equinox

For those still reading my blog, thank you and Happy First Day of Spring, a day that coincides with the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. What is the equinox, you ask? Derived from the Latin for equal (equi) night (nox), this is the day that no matter where you stand on Earth, you will experience the same amount of daylight. This is a day of balance. I only wish I had some to spare. Due to my excrutiatingly tight schedule this week, I leave you with the following links to explore the equinox:

I always figured one of the reasons Amanda is so well balanced a person is because her birthday is on the spring equinox. I'm a mid-summer baby myself.

When's your birthday?

Thanks for the "Happy Equinox," Rebecca. Right back at you.

Robert, my birthday's the day after Halloween...All Saint's Day. Maybe that's why I'm such a "good" person. lol
