More than a tree
I’m working on creating an orchard of fruit-bearing trees in my community. I have to remember to stop and listen to the trees so this project succeeds. Thanks for the reminder!
When we look at a tree, is it just a tree? Or, is there more to that tree? It is likely the home to birds and other animals. Perhaps, rather than a home, it is a resting place during the day or seasons that pass. It is a place of shelter provides food, offers shade, and many other things that are overlooked in our daily passing of the tree. What story does it tell? We only know when we stop, close our eyes, and listen to the tree.
