“The important thing is somehow to begin.” — Henry Moore

This fall, I was surprised to find crocus bulbs sprouting in my front yard. Where I live, crocuses are typically a herald of Spring, so it was several months too early for them to be starting their life cycle. I admire their vigor, and hope they’ll thrive once the weather begins to warm again.

“Our growth depends not on how many experiences we devour, but on how many we digest.” — Ralph W. Sockman

In this first week of the year, many people anticipate beginnings, changes, and opportunities for growth. Share with us an image that evokes this spirit of change and newness — the smile of a new friend, a freshly planted garden, an empty journal waiting to be filled. Growth is very personal, and I encourage you to interpret this as literally or as broadly as you like. Happy New Year — we can’t wait to see your photos!
