Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

taking lessons from a tree

I feel all raw and vulnerable, the emotions peeling from me and leaving me gouged. I want to be more like this tree. How does it exude such a powerful sense of hardiness? How does it maintain it's beauty and purpose through all the phases of it's life? I don't know. Today I don't know anything. But I am willing to learn.
