Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you! I’m back today with a quick post because I’ve had a busy weekend helping my mom move. After I helped my mom, I met with an awesome friend who’s helping me research another idea for a story. I’m so excited about this one! I can’t give you any details yet, but it’s going to be good!
Anyway, I’m loving this fall weather. It has just been incredible. I’ve noticed some awesome colors this season and I’ve taken some pictures. They’ve turned out well and I’m going to try and paint them when my painting ladies get together. I’ve found a new hobby! 🙂
I thought I’d share some of the pics with you. I’ve been drawn to trees lately, so along with the pics I’ve included one of my favorite RUSH songs and one of my favorite poems. I’ve pondered why I’ve been drawn to trees and I’ve come to the conclusion it’s because trees are a symbol of wisdom for me. They endure the changing seasons by being flexible, yet they stay strong, rooted in the earth and reaching for the sky. So here you go. My tribute to Trees. 🙂
ADVICE FROM A TREE
By Ilan Shamir
Stand Tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth
Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The Energy and Birth of Spring
The Growth and Contentment of Summer
The Wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The Rest and Quiet Renewal of Winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night.
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!
Aren’t these colors awesome! I love fall. I love watching the cycle of the seasons reflected in the changes in the trees. 🙂
Here’s a RUSH song about Trees. It’s good!

A beautiful tribute to trees Lisa. Thank you.
Awww…thanks! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your thoughts! 🙂
Fun post, Lisa! Love the poem! I still can’t believe you’re a Rush fan. I’ve seen them in concert during the 70s – so loud! LOL! Great weather we’re having across the Detroit river too! Cheers!
Thanks, Sharon! Yes I am a Rush fan, but I didn’t become one until probably 8 years ago. Hubby kind of turned me on to them. 🙂 We saw them in concert probably 5 years ago. It was awesome. 🙂 They are incredible musicians.
I like your conclusion about why you have an affinity for trees. It is a good maxim for life.
Thanks, Bernadette! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your thoughts! 🙂
I love trees. ❤ I love them for many reasons but, I agree, they're a symbol of wisdom. They're grounding, magical, and beautiful. Lovely tribute.
Oh thank you, Sarah. I agree with you 100%. 🙂
So beautiful 🙂
Thanks! I’m drawn to Trees this year for some reason. 🙂
