bloom breath

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.   -Anais Nin
We all go through the stage of being bound tighly before the unfurling of petal and stamen and flesh.  It is constricted and difficult to breathe.  My sister Michelle calls it transition and as a former mid-wife's assistant, she reminds me in those moments to breathe.
