Almost Too Warm for Spring

The weather jumped from winter to practically summer here in Berkeley.  My dad called to wish me happy birthday today, which pleased me.  But otherwise, the world is completely crazed, with war and nuclear problems; I spent this afternoon readng last Sunday's New York Times and getting depressed.  It is true that a small number of committed people can make a change, but I lack the energy to join them.  I think I'll listen to Judy Small and try to cheer up a bit.
