Happy Naw Ruz! and new beginings

Happy Naw Ruz to all my Baha’i friends! Happy Vernal Equinox to everyone!

For thousands of years the Vernal Equinox has been regarded, by many past and present cultures, as the start of a New Year. And why not? It’s the first day of Spring (even though it doesn’t look that way in some places right now) and that alone ushers in a new growing season with the promise of abundance.

For Baha’is, it’s a religious thing, somewhat like it was for Zoroastrians in ancient Persia. In fact, in Iran, it’s celebrated as a cultural holiday with a number of traditions kept from those ancient days of Persia.  For Baha’is it marks the end of our 19-day fast and the start of a new year.

This year’s fast ended with a triple-play for me. I completed the fast, I completed my taxes, and on Friday, we completed the sale of our house in Casa Grande.  After 6 months on the market and one failed buyer, we accepted a cash offer from a buyer who sold his house in California to retire in Arizona (makes sense to me).  Because it was cash, no lengthy bank processes stood in the way and we closed quickly. So today, I am free of a double bills and on the road to financial recovery, It truly is a New Day (Naw Ruz)!
