I’m an environmental science major and I take photos of nature. Nature is my favorite educator, and one lesson she’s offered me is that of transience. Transience is evident all throughout nature, but possibly most obviously in her short-lived yet strikingly beautiful blooms. The calla lily blooms for merely 3-8 weeks each year, and like so many other flowers, reminds me to remain present in the highs of life and restful in the lows.
Blooming for only about two weeks per year, the cherry blossom reminds me to always stay purposefully aware of the beauty around me. Seasons change, and that in itself is beautiful.
