Spring Returns – The New York Times

Spring returns in the Northern Hemisphere this weekend. The season is an eternal metaphor for optimism, hope, and light and possibility, and even though the past few years have taught us to moderate our anticipation of seasonal renewal, this year’s equinox seems remarkable. We are coming out of a long winter. Fingers crossed, eyes wide open, looking forward to the sunny days ahead.

Lattes are still delicious in March.

Or you can do as I recently did and take a walk or drive while listening to an audiobook. (Patrick Raiden Keefe’s own book “Empire of Pain” describes somehow the 18 hours go by too quickly.)

If you’re ready for a movie, The comedy “The Lost City” starring Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe looks like a hoot. “Call my agent!” The new Netflix series from the creators of “Standing Up” looks good, too.
