“Growth” nature photography print postcard by Susie Hosterman.
A note from the artist:
“We start off small, perhaps falsely identifying ourselves as weak. We then face a winter or two, and many winters (often bitter, insanely cold) one right after another. We learn how to make it through each one, told to: “Hold your cover closer to protect that warm heart of yours” and “Find others who have traveled the path more times before you.” And through that guidance, we learn to stand taller. Guided always North, we learn to move forward– always growing, always committed to a path that is most likely unknown… because we aren’t weak. We are expansive and spacious. And because there is proof of our growth, we know we are stronger than we once were, even just before this past winter. So Thank you Winter for shaping us. And thank you… winters to come!”
