The Spiral of Seasons

The seasons of the year are often represented as a spinning circle or wheel, each season coming around again in its turn. But, that's not quite right because it's not the same summer again, rather a new manifestation of summer -- a spiraling up, season layered on season. With a little luck and learning, my next summer can be better than this one, just as this summer was better than last summer. For me the seasons are a spiral, each season's abundance building on the experiences of that season in the year before and the year before that, all the way back to childhood. I hope that keeping a blog of successes, failures, and ideas for next year will help me make that spiral-building process more conscious and effective.
