It's Easter and it's spring. Never have I felt the sense of renewal as I have this Easter, this spring, after spending a year isolated and now being fully vaccinated.
Happy Easter, everyone. Happy spring.

Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life With Words by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge (National Poetry Month)
I've finished my second Classics Club list and I've started my third. I have found no better way of reading the good books. Let me say that again: I have found no better way of reading the good books. These books have been read and reread over decades, even centuries. And who chooses what books to include? You do. I'm delighted I joined in 2018. I've now read 100 books I never would have read if I hadn't joined the club, including Moby Dick, War and Peace, Excellent Women, A Confederacy of Dunces, all of Jane Austen, Rachel Carson's The Sea Around Us, Diary of Anne Frank, A Girl of the Limberlost, Howards End, Jeeves...so many great reads.
April is National Poetry Month. I will be reading a poem a day in April. Here is the beginning of one I love, Thanks by W. S. Merwin:
