It's 71 degrees outside, 20 degrees warmer than it was on Friday. The sky is clear and blue, and a delightful breeze is wafting into my office. It's a little early for such warm temps, but they are welcome, and glaring white skin can be seen all around campus. Tulips are bursting through the soil. The lilacs should be blooming in about a week, sweetening the air with their heavenly odor. The season of enchanment is upon us! I can't wait to get out my skates for a spin around the lake.
O, how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day!
William Shakespeare, from "The Two Gentlemen of Verona"
