60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: How Are We Like Trees?
by Diane Wyzga | February 3, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in West Fargo, North Dakota!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday.
Pausing my walk in an old growth forest rescued from the developers by tree huggers (literally) back in the 1970s I found a spot to sit on the forest floor and lean against a tree some 300 years old. Imagine that: 300 years old. We know that trees stretch roots down into soil, network with other trees, create social pathways, shelter each other, reach for sun. The whole forest resonates with a symphony of life I can feel vibrating and humming and coursing its way through me. It is alive. And it will follow me home.
Like trees we ground ourselves in the soil of our lives, reach to the stars of our higher possibility nurturing and bringing along those growing up around us so that they, too, may add their good voices to that joyful noise of community, of connection.
Question: How are you like a tree? Where do you ground yourself? With whom do you connect? What are you reaching for? And who are you bringing along?
