fascinated by elements of nature at the moment of
transformation,” comments Anne. “Babies are the human face
of beginnings, but all of nature is caught in this insistent
stream of seasons, of aging and rebirth, of concealment and
bursting forth. Every time I unwrap a newborn, even after

miracle before me. This book, Beginnings, took me on a
journey of discovery to reveal these everyday miracles of
nature, these complementary wonders, in

surprising and illuminating juxtapositions of beginnings in
floral and human forms.

protecting. Told in a language of love that is understood by
