Spring finally got here this week, a little late, somewhat disheveled, and without all of her makeup on - but I couldn't have been more glad to see her. I have always had a remote fear that would make for good eco-science fiction. What if spring didn't come one year; the trees didn't leaf out; the flowers failed to bloom; it never got warm? What if one of earth's oldest cycles was broken? That's a show I don't want to see.
For this month's Bloom Day the normal cast of March characters is still missing a few key players and there are several holdovers from previous shows that refuse to leave the stage. But as it is said, the show must go on, and the curtain is rising whether the cast is ready or not.
