Seasons Change

Sienna remembered finding her first wasp nest, amazed to discover it was made of paper, which was itself made of wood. Her young imagination opened to a world of chemistry.

The nests were sturdy but built for only one season. She learned that lesson many times in her scientific career as well as her personal life: some things were short-lived, but in their own moment strong, beautiful.

Retirement awaited her just outside the lab door. Picking up the wasp nest from her desk, Sienna thought it an accurate life symbol: seasons change. It was time for her to move on.
