Birthday Rose

This is my favorite stage in the blooming of a rose -- open just beyond the bud stage, but not at full bloom yet. It symbolizes how we should be as people, structured and yet still open and flexible. It's a hard balance to strike, and usually requires a lifetime to achieve. However, at least nature reminds us in these moments that we too are as capable of achieving this balance as this red rose. Achieving that balance is one of the major challenges I am hoping to make great progress on this year.
