On my daily walks, dandelion seeds dance before me. Something about them reminds me of snowflakes, as they flitter across my path. In that instant, they bring to me a sign of possibilities, newness, and growth. They don’t think twice before they set themselves free from their blossom, rather they are nudged by the wind to let go and fly free. I watch as they scatter across the grass, where they will no doubt plant their seeds, and the cycle of life will start again.
