Mars Day

Today is the first of March, a day on which I read from Chaucer’s The Knight’s Tale and invoke the energies of Mars to bring conflict to the world. It is also the first day of Bureaucratic Spring, when the Weather Service starts recording things as being springlike, the actual weather notwithstanding.

It is 40 years to the day that I have been doing this little ritual.
