The vernal equinox will take place at 5:24pm EST this coming Monday, March 20. And in honor of this important turning point of the year, we wanted to share a few celebratory offerings to hopefully enhance your joy of the season.

Often in discussions about Hope, a counter argument will be presented (such as this one in Orion Magazine by Derek Jensen), which states that Hope is a bad thing that brings us down, something that keeps us striving and desperate, but never reaching those goals and aspirations—always grasping. 

Krista Tippett, the host of the NPR show, On Being, has much to say on the subject of hope and despair, often closing interviews by asking her guests what causes their despair and what brings them hope. We want to share a few offerings from her today, as part of our 2023 blog theme of Hope. 

Joyous 2023 to all of our readers and followers. 

This year we’ll be giving over a couple of posts a month to our theme for the year: Hope.

Eco-anxiety, grief, climate despair run rampant today. The news media only deepens this and often takes us to even darker places, as it demonstrates in full color the worst of our world.
