There was always something magical about how the branches seemed to reach toward the sky, yet be so rooted to the earth. Even though my tree and I were separated by the window pane, I could feel my spirit blowing through her branches and uplifting my soul. I saw so many different variables of life stemming from one massive trunk, but I never wondered how this was possible...it was just enough to enjoy the natural beauty of it all.
Today, I find myelf once again enraptured by the beauty of branches in nature. More than ever, I find myself looking up as I wander through the woods. I am amazed at how every branch, every single tree, each moment are unique and here I have the priviledge of journeying through the woods to experience it. The beauty folds around me, and I can feel the spirit of the forest wrapping around me just as it does the trees and I am honored. I am part of the forest, if only for a few hours, and I am at peace.
