03/21/2004: "spring equinox"
Today was the first day of spring. It's also called vernal equinox - day and night are each 12 hours long. I was born on the eve of Autumn equinox. It was a beautiful spring day until rain started in the evening. Cheap strawberries are already plentiful in Chinatown. They are pretty but not very sweet, so I baked a strawberry bread. Carlos' girlfriend Loida came by today. "Boss, this is my fiance Loida." So I introduced myself, "Hi, I'm the boss."
