Pick of the Day: Believe in the bloom


It’s cool and wet this morning. A front is coming through. The air has shifted, bringing a chill that may get to freezing by Saturday morning. It’s swirling leaves and setting off my dog, who likes nothing more than to chase whatever the breeze carries aloft. But have faith, the sun will return. The bloom is no false promise. Spring is here.

If you don’t believe me, take it from a higher source. This is Verlyn Klinkenborg, the New York Times’ essayist, editorialist, observer of man and nature, on the change in season. I’m almost certain it’s him anyway. There’s no byline, but his prose leaves an unmistakable mark that's every bit as powerful as “the early bulbs cleaving their way up through the soil, a reminder of the power of small things, the undeterred thrust of the season.”
