Three Seasons

Could the weather be more erratic or bipolar? With subtle glimpes of spring and vicious winter daze the weather gods seem to be playing a little game of hide & seek with us. Or monkey in the middle rather. Taunting us with a hand full of sun only to steal it away and throw wind our way. The weather can’t make up its mind… Being that we’ve experienced three out of four seasons in the past week I have decided to make a little photographic ode to the seasons:

What a weather roller-coaster we’ve been riding. Snow today and 58 degrees expected for tomorrow.

Tonight is the first night of Passover. Passover symbolizes the Hebrews exodus from Egypt and transition from bondage to freedom. In case you don’t already know we orchestrate this meal in a very symbolic way. For instance, we eat green herbs (typically parsley) in honor of the return of spring or as my Seder book deliciously says: “the miracle of nature’s renewal”.

We also eat charoset, made of apples, nuts, wine, cinnamon and other sumptuous spices as a reminder of the clay and cement used to build the cities in Egypt.

This year is special in that Passover and Easter harmoniously land on the same week-end. With that I wish you all a joyous spring/passover/easter/what have you.

Ciao for now,
