Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips ...
Such singing in the wild branches ...
Is it morning? Is it spring?

Come and say, "Hello" to spring on March 20, 2017 at sunrise 6:47 a.m on the first day of the new season at the local Beach Bluff Park's Sun Circle. Joining Gong Master Don Orne will be sculptor and architect Bruce Greenwald, astronomer Jim Keating and members of the Clifton Improvement Association for an inspiring start to spring. As usual, Don Orne will conduct the lovely, heartfelt  ceremony, Bruce Geenwald will answer questions about the art and science of the Sun Circle, and Jim Keating will speak of the science of the sun's position. The inscription on the central dais invites all to enter the circle and celebrate love, art, science and the mysteries of the universe. 
Bring your children and your questions. You can also bring a story, a song or a musical instrument to add to the ceremony. We will celebrate the glory of nature together.  First the sun appears as a sliver and then rises gloriously centered in the twin standing stones:
