“Winter is forbidden until December and exits March the second on the dot…in Camelot. Camelot, that’s how conditions are.” — Alan Jay Lerner, Camelot
With temperatures hovering around -6 in Toronto today, winter is showing no signs of exiting any time soon in my part of the world. But March 2 always brings to my mind the lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner’s title song of the 1960 King Arthur musical. March 2 is my Camelot Day, my harbinger of spring.
The advent of March 2 has me looking for signs of spring in all kinds of places. Hopefully an end to the year-long COVID-19 pandemic and the suffering it has inflicted around the world.
Perhaps another Camelot Era in the United States now that Donald Trump has left the White House.
The possibilities for hope–if not quite Camelot–are endless.
