My life always seems to have something in it of each of the four seasons. There is always some part of my life that is in winter where it is empty and dark. There is always some part of my life that is in the spring, where there are new beginnings and fresh hope. There is always some part of my life which is in the summer, where I am powerful and able to relax and enjoy life. There is always some part of my life that is in the autumn, where there are things that need to be let go of, and others that need to be recommitted to. On any day one of the seasons usually seems stronger than the others, but if I search my life there are always some parts of it that are in each of the seasons.”

Henry Morgan, The God You Already Know
