Ides of March

Ides


Today is the 75th day of 2008! Only 291 days left this year. Also known as the “Ides of March”. 
 
I love the phrase “Beware the Ides of March”. It’s such a great metaphor for some sort of catastrophic or ominous event. It’s probably the only part of the play “Julius Caesar” that I remember, when the soothsayer gives Caesar the warning. Some count today as a day of superstition and dread, much like Friday the 13th. 
 
Whether you’re superstitious or not, happy Ides of March!
