The poinsettias at the base of the street tree on 15th NE in North City look both sad and brave. The end of the Christmas holidays.

The stores are full of Valentine candy and cards. Next Monday we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We're two weeks into the New Year, which seems awfully fast. An engineer once gave me a lecture on parabolic curves and how some days really do move faster than others, but I'm not sure that applies now.

However, the skies have been lighter recently. We have had many sunny days, yet plenty of rain. Snow in the mountains delights the skiers and snowboarders and will provide us enough water in the summer.

Maybe the poinsettias will be happy on the street. They do cheer things up.
