Winter to spring coverLike a flower pushing its way stubbornly through the snow-covered grass, I feel that my heart is turning to the sun again. Change is brutally hard, but nothing good is gained without pain and effort. I want to keep growing for as long as I’m alive. I spent a lot of years being afraid, and therefore stagnant. Now I want to move forward. I’m eager for the spring. – From essays in Winter to Spring

This curated essay collection charts a five-year period of turbulent growth and inner transformation. The hibernation of winter is part of the cycle of new life. You don’t get one without the other – the quiet, introspective season leads directly to the showy, outward-focused spring.
