Not a leaf on the wind, a tree in the ground

I went for a walk the other night. On my walk, it struck me that trees are amazingly gracious  creatures. They do their tree thing while allowing all sorts of other creatures to live in and on and around them. They’ve figured out a way to have symbiotic relationships and still grow strong.

I’ve always loved Aragorn’s poem in Lord of the Rings, and I remember this line especially right now: “Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

I find out more about my treatment plan this Thursday (10/4), but until then, I’m working on being a tree.
