Something about March?

Each year as March dawns, and lengthens, I have a strange sense of anticipation. No other month makes me feel there is something about to happen ...

Is it because it is the month of my dearly-departed Nanny Thelma's birthday? Is it because my first, and sweetest (and only) niece was born this month - soon to turn 5?

Is it because I (mostly) find people born in this month frighten me with their intensity and fragility, lovingness and ire. I'm always afraid I'll be caught off-guard, lacking grace and understanding (because of my fear and) despite my fascination.

Sigh, I will ponder longer. Happy birthday Nanny and Sachi and cousin Christiaan and Kathy D ... and others ...
