Brighter days ahead

Brighter days ahead

Opening day! Cold and gray sky for the Cubs home opener at Wrigley field. Yes, baseball again, full capacity again, like before the plague years.

It’s enough to remember the beauty of baseball, the hope of Opening Day. The weather doesn’t really matter. It’s the spirit of blue sky and 70 degrees. Oh, there may be cold and snow in April, no fooling, but no snow today.

And there will be brighter days ahead. Today, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been confirmed as Justice of the Supreme Court!

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s time now. History is being made today.

Plagues, wars, climate change, there is reason for despair. There is much work to do. But the sparrows are chirping in the lilac branches, and the new leaves are a green mist in the rain. There is hope in a new season, and brighter days ahead.

    There were some years when almost all of April ball was rained out. At least it should be in the 70s next week.

    Thank you so much! Maybe there are two new years--Opening Day, and the first day of school in the fall. Yes, beginning again...
