Soft Rebellion and the Lovely Dead

Every autumn I think of a quote, whose origin I have yet to discover, that simply states:

The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let dead things go.

This year more than ever before I think the wisdom of this sentiment rings true in ways I have only just begun to discover. And while I think on the letting go of that which is dead, I am also reminded of another wise sentiment:

When you’ve learned

To endure pain

As silently as the earth,

Blossoming

Becomes

A soft act of rebellion.

~Pavana Reddy

I feel as though I have somehow begun to live both sentiments simultaneously.
