Spring is here. Although to most people who don’t live in Southern California, the distinction between the seasons may seem to come down to the difference of a few degrees. We feel it, however subtle. Hummingbirds are darting through the petals in front of my desk window. The bright pink bougainvillea flowers that lie dormant in winter begin to soak their color all over the city once again. Fog begins to roll in off the beach around dinnertime. As the days get longer, we can sometimes make it to the beach to watch the sunset, and bedtime often comes just as the night begins.
