We are just like crab apple trees. We grow buds bursting with thoughts, fears and excitement- and we unfold them open with the warm easy sunshine. Let go. We bloom flowers and, let go as they fall to the earth. We bloom and give birth to fruit, like our ideas budding into material and we give them away to the earth to our environments. What we are called to do. Then we sleep and grow our roots and replenish the earth beneath, the environment- ourselves. Growing and growing, slowly. Connecting. Deepening. And again we spring into bloom with flowers and so the cycle continues as we grow taller and taller and wider spreading on our path to the sun, year after year. Growing with the cycles of nature, we are nature. The tree that blooms, grows, gives, digs, and connects.
