Ten thousand flowers in spring,
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life. “Ten Thousand Flowers in Spring” by the Chinese sage Wu-Men.
Photo credit: my beloved daughter Dierdre yesterday sent me the photo of the flowering plum tree in her garden in France, an image I blended with a photo I took of a nearby field after a light snowfall late last month. I have found much joy in this dad/daughter collaboration and am deeply grateful on International Woman’s Day for this remarkable woman’s presence in my life.
