I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far! ~John Muir
Plant your trunk solid in the ground so you know where you belong.
Let your limbs sway with the wind so you know the feeling of freedom.
Stretch to the shining sun knowing the sky does not limit you.
Take your space but allow room for others to join you…share the joy of life.
When you’re pounded by the rain, soak in the moisture and enjoy the message.
Remember the stories that pass your way in this life…learn your lessons.
Let others climb you when they need a lift, but don’t be afraid to let them go.
While some may cling to you, shake off those that stifle you.
Wrap your arms around love and hold on to what is dear to you.
Graciously spread out and make your presence known.
Take pleasure in life. Dance with the moon and stars.
Let your inhibitions go. Sing with the wind.
Be a friend. Smile at the sun.
Never forget the dangers of fire.
Be grateful for the rain that nourishes your soul.
Reach out far and wide. Extend your invitation to life.
Living in the Gap
April 13, 2012 – Wispy luminous clouds
Wispy clouds scattered about the sky. A line of demarcation separated the descending sun. It was as if a veil was dropping on one side of the sky while the other was lifting in light as the sun pushed its way down through the clouds. Balls of cotton floated in a blue pond at dusk…a sight to behold.
