I am reading (like many people) Four Thousand Weeks. That and other similar resources have sharpened my awareness of how little time we have when compared to all the things we could do.
That feeling is especially acute right now, in March. This is when some of my favorite seasonal events happen:
- Building a luminary for Ann Arbor’s FoolMoon festival
- Making maple syrup from sap
- Competing in Kaggle’s March Madness machine learning prediction contest
- Starting seeds indoors for the garden
I’ve done all of those things at various times in the past. Never all in the same year, tellingly. Maybe it’s the pull of the longer days and warmer weather that has me wanting to embrace all of these March traditions at once.
