My time with these ancient elders was short. Of course that’s not saying much when you stand before thousand-year-old trees. I could spend my whole life with them and still go unmentioned in their biographies. Just attempting to consider all that has come to pass in their lifetime is mind-boggling. Wars waged, empires rising to power only to fall to the next. Inventions revolutionized the world simply to be rendered obsolete by another. Man changed the landscape countless times over in the past thousand years, yet nothing toppled these ancient elders. They where here before us, and they will be here after us, let us not take the lessons they offer for granted.
Happy Tree Tuesday everyone! If you’d like to join in on the celebration of trees, please do. There is but one simple rule – post an image (or images) of a tree on Tuesday. Just make sure to add ‘tree tuesday’ as a category or tag so people can find it. OK so I guess there are two rules.
