I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do. ~Willa Cather, 1913
It may be a very good idea to consider an extended photographic study of this birch. Already I've learned something about how to live.
All day long I had strange and interesting moments of synchronicity with people I knew in the known events of the day, with total strangers in the unexpected lingers, and in seemingly disparate thoughts and actions. All of these came together today to tell me that I am indeed on the right path. This is exactly where I am supposed to be and resigned to it with gratitude.
