We need to get to know the trees; they were here the longest. They are rooted, yet they branch out towards the sky. They have known the darkness of winter, yet they always somehow find new generosity to welcome spring again each year. They know how to go through change, and they know that change doesn’t happen only once; trees know it happens all the time. Yet in their silent wisdom they live each season to the full and they don’t rush from one season to another. We can learn a lot by observing trees.
