Be a Daffodil or a Tulip

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”  Anais Nin

To me, croneing is the other alternative to giving up and being done.  Instead, it is the choice to “be”, to reblossom.  To be a perennial.   To prune myself back in the winter, and bloom like crazy each year.  To become more robust in the aging process.

lasting or continuing throughout the entire year, as a stream.
