Looking Back to March Past

Are you wondering what today's blog title signifies? No, I'm not recalling those heady high school days when we had to practise marching past our teachers, left-right, left-right, to the tune of Colonel Bogey. Those march pasts were agony for a serge-clad child like me, born out of step with other marchers and dancers.

Today is when I'm taking a look at posts from March 2009 and March 2010. Reminiscing and checking whether I wrote anything worth re-visiting.
