Incipience means "beginning to happen or develop." When you live in a state like South Dakota, where spring comes late, there is something very special about buds and flowers that are about to bloom. In this case, we are looking at the white flowering crab apple tree right outside our front door. Blooms in this phase are ephemeral - you may find them in the morning, leave and return later to find that they have flowered. This says something about the transitions we and our families make in life, too, doesn't it?
