When Trees Speak

When Trees speak

A coastal Redwood tree can live up to 2000 years. The average life span is between 500 and 800 years. Knowing this, my respect for longevity is renewed. I look at this tree and imagine what it has seen and heard over the centuries of its life, so far.

The symbol of trees crosses all continents and cultures. Native American culture refers to trees as the Standing People. A tree connects the physical realm to the realm of spirit. The redwood is the grandmother tree spirit.

Does this redwood tree speak to you?



Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day; Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you have wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.
