“We say that flowers return every spring, but that is a lie. It is true that the world is renewed. It is also true that that renewal comes at a price, for even if the flower grows from an ancient vine, the flowers of spring are themselves new to the world, untried and untested.” Daniel Abraham, The Price of Spring
Every new season is different. And there are seasons within seasons. Early spring is more like winter. Late spring more like summer.
Each season of life is so. We grow up in a nest of sorts. We leave the nest. Perhaps we do not settle right away. Then we make a new nest. We welcome young ones to it. They leave.
A new season.
New flowers never before seen on earth.
Today is the first day of spring. A new season to find new plantings.
A new day to become new growth.
