March 7th – Things that happen while you’re not looking.
The darkness is receding fast now – we’re gaining around fifteen minutes more light in the evening now every week, and soon it will be the spring equinox, when the daylight and night time are the same length – 12 hours.
The concept of the equinox fascinates me, and I don’t really know why. But within a fortnight the sunrise and sunset will occur at the same numerical time, but AM and PM.
And after the equinox comes the start of British Summer Time – this year cruelly not until the 31st March.
Still, it’s almost over.
