I forgot to tell you. Toni, how much I liked your article -- but then I always like your articles. Unfortunately, I think I'm starting to take your ability to express your thoughts in writing for granted. :-)

I live in Albuquerque, NM. Everything is suddenly (?) turning green here -- almost like overnight -- which is amazing since we have no water to speak of. Anyway, I absolutely love the change of seasons in the desert. In fact, I absolutely love every day here. There is just something unusual -- 'spiritual'? -- about the terrain and skies of NM.

A Happy Spring to all!
