By the last throes of winter, we all are eagerly waiting for the resurrection of springtime. We watch for signs of it. A sudden newness arrives, which speaks to hearts that have held out through the winter. Along with the rebirth, there is a solid recognition of age, for spring is an ancient renewal. Spring: A Spiritual Biography of the Season explores this delicate balance between the new and the ancient, evoking our sense that springtime is a time of poignant renewal, of youth merged with age, of giddy joy tempered by wisdom.
