Hints of change

Thursday's (scant) snowfall is still melting. But today I found a witch hazel bush in full bloom, and spied some shoots of spring bulbs peeking above the soil.

In every season are hints of the season to come. If this were a book, we'd call it "foreshadowing."

In the happiest scenes in books, we often plant a seed of disturbance, a suggestion of trouble to come. In the darkest scenes, we make room for a glimmer of hope. One thing we know: the change will always come.

Comments

During our errands on Saturday, we stopped in a little flower shop to buy flowers for a friend who has been having a rough time lately. Next to the front door were pots filled with mixed green shoots of hyacinths, daffodils, and tulips. No blooms yet, but wonderful to see the promise there. Our friend now has a pot full of Spring promise to smile over.
That is lovely!
I really like it. Our friend alllllmost didn't receive it. ;-}
