Out of fallen snow

Beneath or inside the life we lead every day is another life. This unseen life runs like a river beneath the city, beneath work, family, ambition ...In the helter-skelter, in the rush to get an education, to make a career, to make a family, to find material success, to hurry, to do, to survive, this interior life is often subjugated or paved over...But [it] is unstoppable; it comes up in loveliness like jonquils out of fallen snow.

-- John Tarrant, The Light Inside the Dark, p.4
