'Life Goes On '
As i was wandering through the resting bones of the churchyard , i stopped at each tree i passed and studied its every grain and twist, knot and scar , and noticed which way it was progressing . Each tree grew straight up..no reaching to the left, or facing to the right, just straight up. They were growing in an open space, fighting for nothing. Bathing in their own spotlight, with nothing to cast shade upon them. These were very old trees. They were purposely placed here. And It was like they had some kind of unspoken respect for oneanothers essential purpose for being present.
They were markers, boundaries , shade, shelter , and places of comfort , where deep emotions could go to express themselves for some alone time.
But this one..this one taught me a lesson. This one made me think more carefully.
This one taught me Acceptance.
Witnessing this beautiful , gnarly giants battle scars from the years of natures relentless elements, brought to my attention the primary fact that we all, at some point in our lives, must accept. CHANGE , and embrace it .
No matter how bad we've been twisted, damaged and broken . We still have the ability and CHOICE to keep growing, no matter what. And those scars are what adds character and the true uniqueness to our lives.
This magical being has grown , against all odds, with rusty iron reaching deep into its core and un faltering rigidity spearing upwards into its limbs , and it STILL carries its wounds and works with what it has been given on its journey .
It confirmed to me.... " Life goes on "
Thankyou nature . I FRICKIN LOVE YOU TREES !!! 🌳🌍
