Title of Work

Emergence

Description of Work

I used to really dislike winter. Short days--darkness and cold. And the damp early spring weather seems never ending, the rain trapping me restlessly inside.

But a few years ago, I stumbled across some readings that fascinated me about winter growth. How things in the woods are not really slumbering during winter, but are slowly and steadily growing. Roots and stems of many plants go through quiet preparatory phases in the slow times, their activities unseen. Readying for an explosion of young and fresh growth when the time is right. Patience. The darkness making way for the light. The parent and the newborn.

We humans have a lot to learn.
