At the International Lilac Society’s Fall Festival in Hooksett, New Hampshire, I presented a selection from my work-in-progress about lilacs, accompanied by four stellar Harvard research partners. After the event we communed with the edge of a New England forest, and looking at the image again, a quote from lilac-lover Boris Pasternak comes to mind: “One must live and write restlessly, with the help of the new reserves that life offers.”
