Birth and Rebirth


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.
