Lilacs are sirens. Literally, obviously, but also symbolically. Not like those that lure you to your death with magical songs, but rather beauties that wake you up with their magical smell, softly reaching you when passing by. Penetrating the busy mind with their message: come, come smell us, pause, inhale our sweet wisdom, we'll bring you back to what's here and now, come, connect with us... And you do, and with a single inhalation you are in tune again.
Please, do yourself and the world a favor. When passing by these gorgeous, fresh, straightforward teachers - listen to them through your nostrils, accept their invitation, pause.
Lilacs, sirens. Every year they bloom for us,
offering everything. Simply everything.
