A Magnolia in the garden
Visiting friends, just in time to contemplate the flourishing Magnolia.
Flowers and friends causing warm happy feelings. Yet, they will be gone in a few days—that's the fleeting nature of life.
Treasure those moments in your heart-mind, recall them to keep you warm during the Winters ahead.
Concurrently, due to life's serendipity, Maria Popova writes a beautiful piece about Magnolias.
