Let me tell you friends we've got trouble right here in River City and all over the world for that matter. So much to worry about, the natural and man made disasters in Japan, the crisis in Libya to name just two. Bad news back home as well with house prices continuing to drop, little confidence in the economy and a complete lack of political discourse which might pave the way to some kind of resolution.
But today despite the temperature, there is a glimpse of spring in the air. The birds are returning after their long winter's journey, the sun is shining when we leave work, the crocuses and daffodils are sprouting, and perhaps a bit prematurely, women (and a few men) are beginning to publicly display their expensive pedicures.
It's the time of the year for new beginnings. The holidays of re-birth, Passover and Easter are right around the corner. This time of year, all hope springs eternal, spring cleaning has us throwing out the unnecessary things in our lives. The slate is rubbed clear and we get a chance to start anew.
If you are of the right mind, it is the time in the year when all should seem right in the world.
In short, happy Opening Day folks!
