March is a month of transitions. March 10th is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time, which is a misnomer, because no daylight is actually saved. It is just taken off the morning and tacked onto the evening. I’m one who thinks we should just set one system and stick with it.

Then, March 20th is the first day of Spring, a season many people look forward to, especially if the winter has been harsh. Often the weather doesn’t cooperate, though, leaving us with more cold and other winter events (like snow and ice!). But, still, hope abounds, and the transition from winter to spring will be in progress this month and may yield some spring-like days.

So, what will you do with your March? Planning ahead may help you sort out what’s happening in the month and keep you from squandering time, although squandering some time is beneficial in any month. It is thinking time and dreaming time and time to enjoy activities that make you happy. March can be a gloomy month, so be sure to plan some sunshine into your days.

Pick one or more of the following prompts and write about transitions.

How do you feel about changing the time? How does in impact you? Maybe a funny little write will make you laugh.

Write about the coming of Spring and what you plan to do to celebrate its beginning.
