Winter’s End

A journey we all have been taking is the slow, cold march though winter. Of late we have seen some particularly chilly temperatures, especially in the morning. Caps and warm sweaters help, but really only the approach of summer will finally remove the foggy damp blanket that’s been covering us as of late.

But we’re getting there. This week saw the return of Basant Panchami, the Indian festival celebrating the return of spring. Though it’s not officially springing just yet, it was a chance to get outside and fly kites, which is usually a holiday activity. There wasn’t a ton of wind but we did manage to put together a little video for you to take a look at. Happy Basant Panchami to all of our Indian friends!
