Around and Round we go!

Greetings, Brainy Girls, and happy spring!  I figured that since our seasons are in transition, what better theme for the April and May issue than cycles?  What kind of cycles, you ask?  Well, that's where things get interesting.  Today, the obvious answer is seasonal cycles.  It is beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest, a welcome change from the cold rainy winter that we've had.  Birds are visiting the back yard feeder, bulbs are blooming, and I'm even going to biCYCLE to work tomorrow!

See?  Cycles are everywhere...including cycles within cycles.  Seasons change, wildlife migrates depending on photoperiod and temperature, plants start springing into action as the days warm up, and people's behavior changes along with the weather.

What other cycles can you think of?  In this upcoming issue of Brainy Girls, we'll be exploring other types of cycles.  Do you have a favorite that you'd like us to talk about?  Feel free to let me know - one of the best things about running this website is when I get to interact with readers.  What will it be?  The rotational cycles of our solar system?  The microscopic intricacies of soil nutrient cycles?  Something in between?  You'll just have to stay on the merry-go-round and keep checking back as the month progresses!

I hope that you are having a fantastic spring!
