This week, show us renewal.
“The ghostly winter silence had given way to the great Spring murmur of awakening life.” — Jack London
When I lived in South Carolina, fall was always my favorite season. It meant we were finally getting a reprieve from the relentlessly hot summers. I moved back to my native Ohio several years ago, and Spring has become my favorite season. For nature-lovers, there are few things more wonderful than the awakening of life after a cold, gray winter. Spring is a glorious green renewal.
This week, show us an image of an awakening. I’ve chosen a photo of a fiddlehead, the structure that rises from the ground, eventually to unfurl into the leaves of a fern. Those of you in the Southern Hemisphere are headed into autumn, and your environment is preparing for a winter rest. Your interpretation doesn’t have to be botanical in nature. I’m eager to see what you all share.
