Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England
At the Spring Equinox, day and night are of equal length all over the world. 
The sun’s journey along the horizon — its position as it kissed the giant columnated stones — was used as a seasonal calendar by the monument’s builders five thousand years ago. 
Today at dawn, druids and pagans gather at that ancient site to celebrate the Spring Equinox, and welcome the new season.

Congratulations to Science. Almost one hundred years after Einstein predicted it, the team at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics established direct evidence of cosmic inflation AKA they just put the “bang” in the Big Bang. This is big.

It was March, a cool early spring, when a restless twenty-seven year old Thoreau began to chop down the first pine trees for the foundation of his cabin on Walden Pond.

John Whitney — Matrix III, 1972.

When American John Whitney founded Motion Graphics Incorporated in 1960, he’d already spent two decades working as a mechanical animator and inventor — a career that won him a Guggenheim Fellowship, and saw him working on such seminal visual effects as Saul Bass’ glorious title sequence for Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Using a converted WWII antiaircraft gun director, Whitney built his own 12-foot analogue computer in the 1950s, becoming in the process one of the primitive forebears of computer animation.

Whitney graduated to digital processes by the ’70s, when he created this gorgeously hypnotic film in collaboration with Terry Riley.
