“We are held by the seasons from the moment we’re born. If I said to you tell me an important memory of your life, … you will know the season, if not the actual month. We know that this happened in our life in the frigid, blank white cold of winter. We know that this happened in the lush ripening of August. We live in the seasons and yet there are so many ways we get disconnected from those natural cycles.”
