Sensory Walk: A lesson in survival - bend, not break
Living through misfortunes
Bend, not break!
During my latest sensory walk, my eyes were drawn to dead, dried trees. There's so many of them in a forest, yet I rarely noticed them before. They come in all shapes and colors, and it seems so easy for a tree branch to get snapped and wilt away.
After a couple hours in the forest, I noticed a very peculiar sight. I tree cut down and fallen, yet green!I would've never paid attention to something like that if I didn't practice using my senses outdoors.
So I examined the tree - its trunk is almost completely severed and splintered. It looks like the tree fell at least a couple months ago. Yet it still lives! New branches spring everywhere and all the vegetation seen on the tree belongs to the tree itself. I triple checked that!
What does a silly tree has to do with anything? Quite a lot actually. Trees know how to bend and twist but not break. Something that people should learn in these turbulent times!
How do you survive when all is lost?
A little parting gift
I took a little branch from this tree which I hope will spring roots. If it does, I will replant it at some prominent location!
