April 15 is the day to file your taxes in the US. Every year I vow to be more prepared so I am not looking for documents at the last minute or having to make a run to the accountant. But guess what? I never change and I am always somewhat frantic.
The same with spring. Each year I pray for it, invoke it, ask that I be delivered from winter, and every time it arrives, I am somehow not quite ready for it. I grumble a bit being awakened from that long winter’s nap.
