  • Column: Spring arrives, and we bustle to clear away winter’s daze

    Spring comes – like a beautiful woman making promises – and we follow. Aroused by her loveliness, we hastily try to make our premises more suitable for her visit.
    We wash the greyness of winter off the windows, inviting her warmth into our homes. The dusty bookshelves, the soiled carpet, the cluttered closets, the unkempt lawns – all must be cleaned for our bright young guest. We feel rejuvenated by her fragrance, her newness, her vitality. Even the winter flab, which has been obscured beneath bulky sweaters, will be trimmed in her honor.
