Originated by MaryT, check hers for today.

The magic folly of spring is sweeping over us.
The sun beats the dark by 13,6 hours to 11,6, and it will go on and on till the nights become blond again.
"Blond on blond" to quote Dylan.

I've been out hunting down the spring today.
This is what I found:
In Norway people go skiing and skating till late April.
Nice hobby for masochists.
(Never thought that I should be a sports photographer, not even in the junior league!)
Football, the real one, is no leisure game.
It's more important than life and death, a famous English coach said.
Footballers come crawling out as soon as the snow is gone.
We were a trip at Norway's eastside this week.
From the plane we saw the landscape covered in a white coat of snow, except from the regularly green"stamps", the grass covered football stadiums.
Pope John Paul II said:"Of all the unnecessities of the world, football is the most important."
Personally I find football overrated, overpaid and totally blown out of proportions in the minds of media and average people.
Except for this single red team called Fire from Bergen.
I sing their songs, I watch their games on the telli, and if Gunnar's broken nose heals well, I hope we can see them live this season.

Emily Dickinson
A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!
