Every spring, with the very earliest warmth, my neighbor’s majestic Japanese Magnolia tree blooms. Its flowers only last for a week. Less if it rains. Many of the “villagers” in our neighborhood pull over on their way to and fro to take pictures.


For me these short-blooming flowers represent everything that is exquisite and fragile about seasons and beauty. They are a symbol of the HOPE that Spring comes again. It reminds me that bliss is delicate and effervescent, but there is always more ahead.
