The winter snows beat them down, so that by spring they are lying flat on the ground. Then the new fronds spring up.
Sometimes, life beats us down. It can especially feel that way in the winter. Whether we realize it or not, we do still have an internal springiness, but we may have to wait for it to show up in our lives.
In the mean time, during these chill, dark, winter days, you can retreat to mindfulness. That's what i'm doing these first two weeks of January--making a commitment to sit for 2 hours every day.
The Christmas ferns are green under the snow.
