Day and Night Become Equal

Today marks the first day of spring or vernal equinox as it known among scientists and new-agers. Twice a year, day and night become equal in length. The vernal equinox is said to be the one day of the year that eggs can be balanced on their end. I have no idea why that was said but apparently you can balance eggs on end any day of the year with enough patience:

To mark this occasion of egg balancing, here are some random mp3s that have a seasonal feel to them:

Sambassadeur – Whatever Season

Ballboy – Leave the Earth and Take a Walk into the Sunshine

The Free Design (re-mixed by Mellow) – Kites are Fun

The Rosebuds – Bluebird

Laura Cantrell – When the Roses Bloom Again

Belle and Sebastian – Another Sunny Day

On an un-related note, a technical difficulty has eradicated the last post on Crenellation entitled “That’s the Spirit”. That post, about Judee Sill, was kindly authored by a lovely person with great musical sensibility. Now, there was something in the code that Blogger, the program, did not like. After the initial post, it would not allow me to go in and edit or delete and re-publish. As such, it is stuck in Blogger draft-land and will not budge. Should I re-post it, it will have to come at a later date (as today’s post is time/date sensitive). In the meantime, should you wish to learn more about Judee Sill, here is some linkage:

Apologies to the Swami -- I hope it doesn’t deter you from submitting something in the future!

A very happy solstice to ye. The Swami has revealed to me that he would be pleased - as worldly and earthbound an assertion as that may be - if his entry on Ms Sill could be reposted at some point in the near future, in its updated finalized form. Please do be in touch, and salaam (on rye).
