Today is my amazing husband’s birthday,  so birth and celebration are on our minds… but we are are also dealing with caring responsibly for his ageing mother,  and a dear friend’s father died last night,  so life and death feel very real and quite bittersweet at the moment. As I walked to work this evening,  this lovely tree caught my eye and its beautiful but fragile blossoms seemed to sum up the complexity of my tender emotions. Fragile,  resilient,  fleeting… a moment to be cherished.
