TALKING TO MYSELF: 22 March , 2013 The pear trees on our Lexington street were in full bloom last year by March 18 when Ernie took this photograph. Today, it’s 31 degrees outside and “feels like 29” the weather gizmo on my computer says. The pear trees haven't even thought about their spring blossoms yet. More on this subject coming soon, maybe in next week's column "Georgia: On My Mind." Or maybe not. I am reminded, though, of Eileen Morgan reading Shelley's "Ode to the West Wind" to my high school English class a lifetime ago. "If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?" she and the poet promised. Shelley, maybe not so much, but Mrs. Morgan's voice reading Shelley has pulled me through a lot of cold places in life.
