Another beautiful spring day, another spring image to celebrate its beauty. As beautiful as it is, this season is the most fleeting of all four. The fact that the season of rejuvenation and awakening is so brief is all the more reason to contemplate the transcience of life. The old masters wrote, "Carpe Diem" - "Seize the Day".
When you look at this dreamy afternoon landscape of the sleepy village and silent slope, spare a minute and contemplate your day. For the way you live your day is the very reflection of the way you live your life. Spring breeze will soon pass, giving way to scorching summer sun; time indeed will fly away in his "winged chariot" (Andrew Marvell, To His Coy Mistress), however, if there is one single brief thing we can savour till the last flicker of its fleeting shadow: life. Therefore, as another master will agree, go to the woods once in a while to contemplate the beauty of the world, the frailty of life, the joy of every single day, "to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life" ( Thoreau, Walden, or Life in the Woods).
***Happy Birthday, Suby, the man I'd love to "seize" every single day with for the rest of my life. ***
