President's Message

Salvete, omnes!

March has arrived, and we leave a very mild and unremarkable winter behind us. Always at this time of year this change of seasons brings to mind the words of Catullus in Carmen 46:

Iam ver egelidos refert tepores,

iam caeli furor aequinoctialis

iucundis Zephyri silescit auris...

iam mens praetrepidans avet vagari,

iam laeti studio pedes vigescunt.
