Learning from my tree teachers...
In the fall we must drop our leaves and stretch our roots.
In the winter we must stand in the stillness so that in the spring when life is filled with possibility there is nothing extra holding us back from stretching onward towards the sun.
Our journey is to find the light that seeps through the canopy,
grow with the resources provided to us by the earth,
absorb the vapor of the air.
We must stand tall and be willing to bend when necessary.
