Quote- Risk to Blossom

While I have never read any of the works of Anais Nin, one of my favorite quotes is attributed to her…

risk to blossom


“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

When I took the photo of the pine blossom, with my Canon Elph, I thought the quote would be perfect for it.

Wouldn’t you agree?
