"Ides of March" did not necessarily evoke a dark mood—it was simply the standard way of saying "March 15."
The term Ides comes from the earliest Roman calendar, which organized its
months around three days, each of which served as a reference point for counting
the other days:
~Kalends (1st day of the month)
~Nones (the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the other months)
~Ides (the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months)
The year is marching on, isn’t it?
All those New Year’s Day vibes have worn off completely. We’ve returned to
the everyday slog of our businesses.
Trying to keep to more of the good habits in life. Like a To do list is
easiler said than done. But I find I get more done with it than without it or
maybe it is just that in writing down the things I need to do seems like I have
gotten more done. I since can look back at it and see all I finsihed, and that
my friends, just feels great... Which ever it is the Ides of March are not kick
me around this year.
I hope everyone has a Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend... Don't drink soo much
and if you do have a sobber friend or taxi drive you home. Have fun my dear
freinds and loyal readers.
