practice like a tree…

after teaching a meditation class for a group of friends earlier today, i decided to go for a walk. i needed to get outside, into the sun, into the fresh air, breathe, walk and listen to birds.

ever since i was a little kid, i’ve felt some sort of kinship with trees. i’m infatuated with them, their roots, their bark, the canopy of branches and leaves they create giving home to so many, and their relationship with earth and sky.

may we take root, deep into this earth with dignity and strength. may we reach up, bathing in the warmth and wisdom of the light. and may we stretch out in generosity and love to others in their need.

here are some photos from my walk and further evidence that for some reason i am consistently unable to look directly into the lens of a camera phone.
