KORE RISING is a re-run, yes -- I still haven't gotten around to taking new photos, I'm afraid. I am posting Kore again, because this is the time of year she is intended to celebrate. Kore is Persephone, who spends half her life as queen of the underworld, and March 20, the vernal equinox, is the time when she rises from the underworld and starts the whole cycle of blossom and fruit over again. I posted her before for the New Year -- well, back in the day, this was the new year!
And in spite of the chill today, I have seen the speartops of the spring bulbs poking up, and the little birds that live in the ivy of the Penn DOT building have been screaming Spring since the beginning of February. Turns out they were right, as they are every year! I have bought a big box of baby arugula to celebrate the first return of green.
