This post is from a few years ago....but so worth sharing again. The experience hasn't changed.
I take my power walks in a lovely park close to home. I notice the trees and the rocks and the birds. There's a lake right in the middle of the park, also. It's beautiful to be able to enjoy so much, for free. I love the exposure to nature.
Yesterday, I observed a little closer some of the trees that I passed as I walked . First, I took notice of the path where I start my walks....it's like a greeting committee...of mango trees.
Just walking underneath them I felt as if I was surrounded, nurtured and greeted happily by these wonderful living beings. I could almost sense them communicating with me.
Walking on, I noticed one tree. It felt like it resembled me. Short, not tall.....with a chunky trunk and lots of flowers (to later turn into fruit) on its branches close to the ground. I like to think I'm like that. My arms extended out, wanting to give to others what I've received.
Guess what? As I continued, I noticed another tree....it seemed to have been blown over by a storm, and most of its roots where outside the ground; yet, even though I thought it should be dead...there was life branching out of it...yes, there were flowers on its branches!!
Funny, I walk this path almost every day....only yesterday did I take notice of all the lessons and stories Nature has to share with me.
