And your name shall be Spring

Eros is the light of wisdom that awakens ad guides the sensuous. It is the energy that illuminates the earth. Without it, the earth would be a bare, cold planet for Eroos it the soul of the earth. … Eros is the mother of life, the force that has brought us here.*
(John O’Donohue)

Coming from so far away, everything on our earth is new to them, interesting and worthy of examination. Nothing is to be taken for granted. There are so many questions to ask. The whole world is, via as yet unmarked minds, born anew.**
(The School of Life)

I am a child of the summer but spring is my favourite time of the year.

We are surrounded by a living picture reminding us of how our creativity and fruitfulness is not lost somewhere in the past but comes again and yet again.

Perhaps winter is a season of forgetting so that we are able to come anew to this experience of spring: childlike, examining, questioning, dreaming, fruiting.

The curious shall inherit the earth.

*From John O’Donohue’s Divine Beauty;
**The School of Life describing children, quoted in Austin Kleon’s blog: The School of Life: How to be curious.
