Ten days ago I wrote about snow. Today is a beautiful gorgeous spring day. Clear and warm with a quiet and mild breeze. After a long cold winter, today is a day that reassures that the seasons really do change.
I remember one summer being really into the single “Jane”.
After yet another falling out, the Jefferson Starship’s remaining members recorded “Freedom at Point Zero”. One of the tracks is titled “Things to Come”. I’m making a small wish for better things to come.
Today is Evacuation Day in Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Evacuation Day commemorates the withdrawal of British forces from the city of Boston during the American Revolution.
General Washington had laid siege to Boston but the British were well supplied by sea. Under cover of darkness on the night of March 4, 1776 American forces seized and fortified Dorchester Heights with fifty-nine cannon. The artillery’s commanding position eventually convinced General Howe, the British commander, to abandon the city. The British sailed to Nova Scotia and American troops entered the city on March 17, 1776.
