There's lots of new growth around here of late. These clematis opened up in the last couple days -- new blooms on last year's vines.
I've been seeing this combination of new and old together in a number of areas recently. There's probably a good metaphor there, related to seasons and life cycles and the interaction of generations, but I haven't come up with it yet.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
