Storm moving in...

At my house we're expecting 6-12" of new snow.  Happy Spring, everyone!

The crisis of leadership in the world has begun to end.

I don't think the world has ever seen a politician quite like Jacinda Ardern. This is what leadership looks like. She is extraordinary. 

Strong enough to introduce gun control laws and soft enough to comfort the families. 

She represents what the world needs from all leaders right now, whether they are men or women, the courage and compassion to create real and lasting change.

"Over the last few years, the world has waited for a courageous, empathetic and bold leader. Someone who steps forward, takes risks, challenges archaic systems and rallies for peace. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is such a leader. She is leading with love and courage by being an undeniable source of comfort for the Muslim community, New Zealand and the rest of the world.

Within the last twenty-four hours, she has chosen language based on inclusion, compassion and belonging. She has challenged world leaders that incite fear and called them out. She has chosen to wear the Hijab in a mark of respect.

This photo is even more powerful given the fact that she is the youngest female head of government, a woman, a new mother, a leader who is presenting herself in such a manner that the world has not seen in years. She is challenging the stereotype that women are incapable and too emotional to handle national emergencies. More so, she is challenging the bias towards young people in politics.

Prime Minister Ardern is paving the way for a new style of courageous and moral leadership. I only hope that through her example, more will follow. Thank you for being a beacon of hope."

🌷 Welcome Spring! 🌷

The Vernal Equinox begins at 5:58pm EDT today!


For the first time in nearly 40 years, the spring equinox will occur on the same day as March’s Full Worm Moon. The last time that these two events landed on the same date was on March 20, 1981, though they did come close again in March 2000, separated by a span of only four hours.
March’s full Moon will also be a supermoon, meaning that it will be slightly larger and brighter than most of the other full moons this year.
