A Tree House ... my place to love!

A Nest in the Sky

I am happiest walking through different neighborhoods where I live with my dog Bella! Always an adventure of the unknown from one day to the next, never knowing when I am going to be gifted from the Universe with a gentle tap on my shoulder nudging me to open my heart to a new perspective of life waiting for me to discover.

Recently Nature once again drew my attention to the magnificence of my friends the trees. I am mesmerized by their strength of character. Their movement within the confines of the limited air space that allows them to dance on the windiest of days is a view of elegance any time of the season. Their roots run deep with a heritage that surpasses the generations of our time here on earth in most cases. They are a source of life helping to cleanse the air we breathe, procreating with the millions of seeds that fly through the air every spring, and are a source of shelter for so many animals that we share our lives with.

Their attire of a particular season is a sparkling gem for anyone’s eyes to capture. Whether it is the sprouting of spring’s first buds, summer’s green leaves, or the rainbow of colors that fall’s foliage speckles the skies with....always an amazing display of Nature’s cycle of life for the human eyes to absorb. Even on the coldest of winter’s days where trees stand naked of any adornment their raw beauty of strength and grace will lift your eyes to heaven viewing their fingers reaching for the stars. Absolutely stunning!

I have decided I want to add a new dimension to my life that can only be provided by one of my friends from the tree family. I would desire to have a tree house built in the name of “Love”. A nest perched high off the ground that would enrich my life as Nature and I dance one step closer to the melding of our two hearts. A place that allows me to sway a bit when the wind decides to come to visit with a roar, or relax underneath a star lit sky where I too feel that the twinkling night’s canopy is within my embrace.

So as I day dream of lying beneath a starlit sky perhaps a falling star will next dance my way during one of my evening strolls. I wish, I wish….for a tree house with a spectacular view! Some place of solitude or a nest big enough for two. A place where love of nature, self, and heart is free to flourish, a personal space to honor the gifts received from my friends....the Trees!

      I love trees! Someone once told me that I must have been a dryad in a former life. I love your description of them here--

      Love the tree house! We used to build "secret forts" in the trees when I was a kid. Of course, the forts were never really a secret from anyone, but it made them seem more grand.

I will try to figure out how to do it on my end and do the same...I am so new to all of this, and have been preoccupied with school and work as of late! Look forward to reading your tree house dream, which I am off to do right now!!!

      Beautiful hub-my sentiments exactly. I love trees and have also written a hub about them, which I would like to link your tree hub to mine, if that is ok? Voted up and across.

      Missy L. why thank you from my humble heart...I have loved trees forever, and am the pied piper of the neighborhood leading the kids around on tree hug festivals all through the summer...crazy, yes I am, but I do have vision of pure heart! We have another thing in common..trees!!! xoxo

      I am a lover of trees, also - to the point where i drove my poor kids crazy with: Look kids - isn't that tree beautiful! Let's go look at the leaves, the flowers, the nuts, the trunk...(for some reason(lol) they weren't too interested at the time - but both have a deep appreciation of nature now, which...makes the mama proud!) You are a woman with a great heart, P. You 'SEE' the beauty in the world - seek it out - where others are oblivious to it! Never change, my friend...Never change!

      Hi Mary, I so want one now. Bella and I through our strolls have seen so many tree houses lately of all different shapes and sizes. What fun it would be to be nested amongst the leaves of a tree on a summers eve. Seems like the little girl in me is still alive and well..looking to play!!! Have a wonderful evening...thank you for stopping on by!

      Tree houses are wonderful things. I always wanted one as a kid. This Hub was such a nice read. I voted it UP etc.

      A noble dream for sure and one well-worth achieving. I happen to love tree houses and I think we just might have to build one on the farm we are going to own. Best of luck to you on your journey.

      Hi ya Mr. D.! Always so spectacular to see and hear your cheery face and voice!!! I have always loved trees since I was a little girl..they have captured my heart many times over. During my walks I stop and touch so many of my barky friends always wishing them well, morning a limb loss after a storm, admiring their beauty.

      Yes, we are two very sentimental, spiritual old souls dancing our way through life!!! Have a wonderful day young man!!! xo

      Thank you so much alipuckett for your sentiment regarding my tree house dream. I have decided if a man wants to win my heart he will build me my tree house instead of gifting the traditional diamond! A Life shared between two in the sky...so awesome!

      Our spiritual bond grows stronger the more I read and learn about you. You have so eloquently expressed my feelings as well. Voted up, awesome, interesting and beautiful. When I ran out of space for all of the seedlings I purchased and planted from the Arbor Foundation, I then started giving birthday presents as trees being planted in someone's name. Our value system seems right on target. LOL
