In 1999 the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed March 21 World Poetry Day. It's a day set aside to honor the art form and recognize its contribution to not only literature but also music, theater, dance, and the visual arts.

This year's Vernal Equinox falls on the heels of a snowstorm in the Northeast, making it almost laughable to mark the day as spring's first, which it is astronomically-speaking. Astronomers use equinoxes and solstices to mark seasonal shifts. These dates can change from year to year, which is why you may remember last year's spring began on March 19.

It is fascinating that over so many centuries the shamrock has symbolized the mystical significance of the number 3 while representing so many diverse religions and belief systems. St. Patrick popularized the shamrock in Irish myth as a symbol of the holy trinity: the father, the son, and the holy ghost, or alternately, faith, hope, and love.

Sleazy, sexy, matronly and proper. These are words you often hear referring to a woman’s image when associated with her skirt length. The exact length different people consider to be “proper” depends upon who and where you are, whom you’re with and what image you want to portray.

Language is a bedrock of who we are. We identify with a culture through it, and we expose our personalities through it. It's how we learn and communicate. While most of us don't have the chance to start out in life with two languages, we don't have a choice of the one we are born into. We can choose to learn another one, or several. It opens windows to the world, bringing awareness of other worlds.
