It’s spring! Or, it’s almost spring: at just before 1 p.m. today, it becomes spring, and you will feel a bounce in your step, like a caveperson exiting a cave for the first time in months, plucking the last of the winter’s dinosaur jerky from between your teeth. The Times points us to some local celebrations, for those so inclined: in Bowling Green at 12:30 today, the egg-balancing will begin. (“A basket of 360 eggs will be provided for the eggshilarating standing ceremony.”) Or on Sunday, you could meet up to celebrate “the Rites of Spring and Persephone’s emergence from the Underworld.” That’s in room 302 at the gay center, bring seeds to be blessed. It’s spring!
