"A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different," says Marianne Williamson. Each petal is one of several layers that unite to form the tulip's elegant shape, which is supported by an equally poised posture of a stem. The tulip closes at night as an act of self-preservation. Sleep is the ingredient to her perennial finesse.

The Digital Age does not depreciate the importance of honing a signature script.

When your letters become recognizable to others, gain confidence. With repetition, your writing will appear to be the product of a confident hand and individual in nature.

Walking into the sea of flowers on Columbia Road is rejuvenating. The garden scent and camaraderie of the calm crowd breaks any stress I may have brought with me. Selecting flowers for the flat on Sunday ensures that I awake in a dreamlike state on Monday morning.

Miss Annie Rooney (played by Shirley Temple in the 1942 production named for the protagonist) appreciates the best things in life, like spring air, the language of flowers and books from the classic cannon. Mr. Marty White (Dickie Moore) admires her for the elegant young lady she is. I am certain he never let her go, especially after meeting her so suddenly. I imagine they married after three years of courtship, when Annie turned 17. I expect they settled on the Upper East Side, possibly in Sutton Place, and that Annie is stylishly prepared for social spring, her favorite season.
