Under The Shade Of The Old Oak Tree   3 comments

First posted nine years ago today.
This tree can be considered an actor
in a story you’re telling or a drama
that you’re creating out of unusual
things in nature. Your tree plays a
significant role in becoming a symbol
of strength and endurance. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Turkey Creek Trail“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.  The next best time is now.”  ~Chinese Proverb

Turkey Creek Trail“Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other’s company.  Only a few love to be alone.”  ~Jens Jensen, Siftings, 1939

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
