it's springtime!

At times that which seems small and mortal is in reality immense and divine, but can only be experienced in small and mortal increments. The same types of inspiration that lure gods down from the heavens seem to raise artists up to immortality.

As Dante, the great literary author, famously declared, "Ecce Deus fortior me, qui veniens dominabitur mihi" (Behold, a god stronger than I who, coming, shall rule over me). 

Time and again the smallest, humblest most personal developments are transformed by this thaumaturgic process into something universal and divine. 

Things that blur the dividing line between gods and mortals are so small and delicate they sometimes escape human attention, but it seems the gods have figured it out. 

It's springtime. Pay attention.
