“You can cut all the flowers but you can not keep spring from coming.”
– Pablo Neruda
Is it spring already (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere)? I adore spring. I love how people dress and feel brighter as the weather starts warming up. But my favorite part about spring is the sense of new beginnings. Flowers and trees start to bloom. Young buds emerge and make their appearance for the year. Claire Danes for UK Harper’s Bazaar February 2017 reminded me of the lighter colors and beginnings of spring. I love the light colors and texture of her outfit for this editorial. They convey a romantic and sweet mood for the season.
I also love Pablo Neruda’s quote. A flower bush may be repeatedly pruned until is almost bare. But it will persist. Eventually, it will develop buds and bloom for the season. It reminds me to persist. Even when I may feel exhausted and drained, I still have the potential to rebuild. It is a good reminder that I can always begin anew. There is always hope that things can change and be better and brighter. I hope to never forget that!
Have a lovely week!
