In Proto Indo European, the word meant to hurry or to pounce, in Sanskritt to wish eagerly. By old English it meant to arise, to gush, to spring out, to arch upward.
Each meaning of the word “Spring”is connected to a recovery, rebirth, youth, and the idea of a fresh start. It reminds us of images of beauty and the dawn of a new era.
Perhaps in no other time of the year can we feel so deeply close to the natural cycle and part of natural renovation.
The etymology defines spring as a beginning.
The beginning of splendor, for everything and for everybody.
