more signs of spring

Purim's one of those festivals that I know nothing about - I realize - but it sounds rather fun, involving lots of dressing up in a carnivalesque way, and sharing food, and getting drunk (probably not the kids pictured above - they were too busy tie-dying t-shirts).  And reading the Book of Esther.  Esther, being a brave woman, seems a fitting person to celebrate on International Women's Day, too - though the different celebrations occupied different corners of campus today, albeit within fifty feet or so of each other.
